Emma Watson graduated from Brown University with a degree in English Literature on Sunday, May 25.

Emma Watson Earns College Diploma

Watson, best known for playing the smart wizard Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, walked with about 2,000 graduates during the University ceremony. She shared the news with her followers on Twitter, tweeting a selfie in full cap and gown. Clearly excited, the young actress used only an exclamation point as a caption.

Watson began her undergraduate studies at Brown in 2009, but took some time off to work in 2011, delaying her graduation from 2013 to 2014.

In a 2013 interview with Rookie Mag, Watson spoke openly about how important her college years at Brown have been.

“I got famous very young, and [college] gave me a safe zone where I could figure things out without people projecting onto me their ideas of what they wanted me to be, or thought I should be,” she said.

Watson may have been after a normal college experience, but, for safety reasons, Watson attended her graduation ceremony with a bodyguard, who was also dressed in cap and gown to blend in with the sea of graduates.
