TAYLOR SWIFT is going to receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree from New York University.  She’s also going to speak at the commencement ceremony on May 18th at Yankee Stadium. 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 honor an individual.  They don’t hold any real-world value outside of that.  So no, Taylor is not ACTUALLY a doctor.
