I am going to college soon and I want to pursue a career in aviation. I don't really know what commercial aviation jobs there are besides being a pilot. Could anyone help me out here?
Thanks.

No, not really although I probably would want to get my license at some time. I would probably want to go to a regular college if I can.

Some aviation colleges like ERAU, DWC, and maybe UND offers ATC training and a degree.
