Is this a good route to becoming a professional Level Designer in the gaming industry?

I am going to school getting a bachelor's in Computer Science with an emphasis in Game Design. After I get my degree I was thinking about getting a specialized master's. Should I look to getting a Master's Game Design degree from another college?(my college doesn't have a game design degree plan) My dream job is Level Designing. I create levels in my spare time and have my friends and family test them out. I want to get the right education needed for Level Design.
