Alec Baldwin to receive honorary degree

The 30 Rock star, 54, will be feted with a special Doctor of Musical Arts accolade alongside renowned classical pianist Lang Lang on Friday (11May12) during the Manhattan School of Music’s 2012 commencement ceremony.

Baldwin actually attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in the late 1970s before transferring to New York University.

He didn’t finish his studies, but went on to focus on acting at the famed Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in the Big Apple. He later returned to NYU and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts honour in the 1990s.
