Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry officially received his degree!
On Sunday, Curry graduated from Davidson College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology, 13 years after leaving for the 2009 NBA draft.
The university made the announcement in a statement, writing, “Throughout his NBA career, the two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion has repeatedly emphasized the importance of education, how much he valued his Davidson College experience and that he is committed to earning his degree.
Curry needed to finish just one semester to graduate. With the help of a handful of professors—two from Davidson, one from Stanford and a UC Santa Cruz professor who had taught Curry while they were both at Davidson—Curry finished the coursework and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Sociology.
Now that he’s graduated, Davidson College looks forward to an opportunity on campus in the future when it will present his diploma.”
