Degree needed to become graphic designer?

Highschool junior wanting to become a graphic designer, already took a year of graphic design at college when I was 11 and got a 4.0, and now wsu was the college I want to go to.. But if anyone is a graphic designer or knows the requirements to become one, would wsu offer any degrees for that?

What kind of degree would I need to get to at least an entry level position? And could it be a degree in something like fine arts instead of something like graphic design?

    You would be more prepared if you stick to Graphic Design Degree than Fine Arts.

    Typically in Graphic Design degree, you learn package design, branding, book making, typography, color theory, multimedia design (web, mobile, and video rendering), and portfolio prep, among other creative courses.

    Fine Arts degree would lean towards figure drawing, sculpting, metal rendering, art theory, and some courses relative to graphic design.

    Employer is most likely to look at your resume if you have a Graphic Design degree than fine arts. But most eye-catching thing is to have a great portfolio than a degree.
