None, really. If you can draw well and people find your work entertaining, why bust your butt getting a degree? If you want to do cartooning as a career, it helps to make some connections with publishers, magazines, etc. An agent can help you do that. that's right

To become a cartoonist, I think you would need to have a very creative personality. Though it's not exactly an artistic talent, you'd have to be a fairly social character with a good sense of humor. You need to be able to draw funny pictures and make them colorful.

A cartoonist has many different skills. Not only does a cartoonist know how to draw, but they have the ability to understand computer animation, drawing, art tools, humor and wit, writing for dialogue in cartoons, and know current topics and current events.

Something extra that will expand on academic skills already developed.

I do not think that you need certain qualifications. But it will depend on what you want to do. If you want to become a newspaper cartoonist, you probably don't need anything. But for an animatior you probably need an art degree.

There is a great deal of competition for the office of President, therefore, you may need all the skills you can get, if you aspire to the Presidency. The most relevant academic activity would be the debate club, if your school has one.
