Stephen Colbert briefly earns Wellesley College Master’s in Women’s Studies degree

colbert report wellesley collegeThe Colbert Report this week did a bit on Women’s History Month in which host — and feminist — Stephen Colbert studies up on women’s issues and reveals a shocking trend of product companies pushing food-based health and beauty offerings on women. During the sketch, he is handed a Master’s in Women’s Studies degree for his efforts…but he doesn’t get to hold onto the degree for long.

Maybe the school should mix things up and invite him to be its commencement speaker this year. It’s been 34 years since the school has had a man as a commencement speaker (cartoonist Gary Trudeau was the last).

    Plus Wellesley is an undergraduate institution so there are no master’s degree programs.

    That’s the Wesleyan University seal in the lower left hand corner of that degree.
