4-year degree

I’m planning on attending UVU’s (Utah Valley University) flight school this fall but I have a question regarding getting a degree. I’ve read about obtaining a 4-year degree because it’s necessary to have in order to eventually land a job with a major airline. Will my 4 years I spend at UVU’s flight school count as that degree? Or will I need a separate 4-year degree in a major apart from that?

David,

The Majors want a 4 year DEGREE, not just 4 yrs of college. If you graduate from UVU with a 4yr degree (regardless of field of study) you’ll be fine. If not you won’t.
