Taylor Swift will receive her diploma at Yankee Stadium. The singer will be given the official title of Doctor of Fine Arts. It should be remembered that Swift never attended college and was homeschooled throughout her junior and senior years.
Taylor Swift will receive an honorary doctorate in fine arts from New York University today, May 18. She and the rest of the class of 2022 will get their diplomas at Yankee Stadium in New York. According to Variety, the singer will get the honorary title of Doctor of Fine Arts, honoris causa.
In the morning, three graduating classes will be acknowledged, one of which will include Swift. The institution will also stage a “double-header” commencement for the classes of 2020 and 2021, which will be described as “traditional.” That instance, kids who previously were unable to participate in a traditional ceremony owing to the pandemic will now be able to do so in the evening.
Although she has no direct part in the program’s curriculum, NYU already offers a course on the All Too Well singer. The Clive Davis Institute at the university offers a course on the singer’s career, the legacy of pop songwriters, her controversies, youth, and modern pop music politics. The course covers her development as an artist as well as her impact on social media and the music industry.
Other honorary degree holders include Lonnie Bunch III, Susan Hockfield, Jill Lepore, and Félix Matos Rodrguez, in addition to Swift. At the evening ceremony at Yankee Stadium, disability rights activist Judith Heumann will speak to the graduates.
NYU President Andrew Hamilton said in a statement, “I cannot express how excited I am to be gathering in person with graduates, parents, teachers, and honours for NYU’s commencement.”
He went on to say that there has been no graduation or welcome ceremony at the university since 2019, and that the absence has been “deeply felt.” Today, the 2022, 2021, and 2020 classes will be celebrated. They’ve “made a name for themselves via their tenacity, elegance, and patience.” “We reassemble at Yankee Stadium with a renewed feeling of appreciation for the act of celebrating together in person, an acknowledgment of our graduates’ incredible accomplishments, and respect for their character and perseverance,” Hamilton added.
