American singer Taylor Swift is adding more achievements to her previously impressive career records as she is all set to receive an honorary doctorate degree from New York University.

As per the school announced on Monday, the Grammy-winning singer, who is named among the world's top vocalists, will receive a doctorate of Fine Arts, honoris causa, and will speak to graduates at a commencement event on May 18 at Yankee Stadium.

It will be the first time in two years NYU graduates will gather for a graduation ceremony after 2019.

In the press release, the university referred to the Folklore singer as "one of the most prolific and celebrated artists of her generation.”
