Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University offers a BS
degree program in "Professional Aeronautics." The course of study gives one an introduction to many facets of aviation as a career. At the time I went through that program it was geared towards pilots that already had some professional flying and college experience but had not yet completed a degree.
To enter the program at that time (1991), one had to already have an associate degree, commercial pilot certificate, and so many hours of professional flying experience. At the time I an AAS, commercial/instrument/multi, and about 350 hours of FAR
135 flying time (out of about 1500 total) - that program fit me perfectly. Basically, the professional flight time became all of my upper-division elective credits, and the AAS transferred in almost completely as my lower-division credits. That left just a couple of lower-division make-up courses and my senior year to complete.
As an example, here's some of the courses I took at ERAU:
Current Issues in America
Aircraft Accident Investigation
Principles of Air Traffic Control
Directed Study - A course consisting of four research papers on various aviation-related topics. Put this course together with a professor so I could graduate that spring instead of having to wait until fall.
The school I used to teach at offers a pilot-oriented AAS degree in Aviation Technology which transfers quite well to upper-division programs like this. In addition to the core technical courses like PPL, Instrument, and CPL, some of the other courses offered include:
Crew Resource Management
I think these are great study programs to pursue if a pilot career is the goal. And they were a lot of fun, both as a student and instructor!
