Things are falling into place for you
I think you made a wise choice to find a way to finish up a degree that is worth something
,one that will help you get a job outside the horse industry. I don't really know of many trainers that went the route of getting an equine degree,they just apprenticed & learned from other trainers
. In training horses your ability speaks for itself
. That is what gives you success & makes people want to hire you not some piece of paper. Outside a horse industry which some may take that equine degree into consideration,outside of that in the rest of workplace,that degree is not going to get you anywhere IMO.
