Taylor Swift is going to be a doctor
New York University is going to honor Taylor Swift with an HONORARY Doctor of Fine Arts degree. She will receive the honour and speak at their commencement ceremony at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, 18th May.
The commencement ceremony will include the classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022. This degree will actually be Taylor's first. She never went to college.
So what exactly is an honorary degree? Well, it's given to individuals for their contributions to society. Recipients don't have to meet any type of requirements, like taking a test or writing a paper. They're basically only used to honour an individual. They don't hold any real-world value outside of that. So no, Taylor is not ACTUALLY a doctor.
