Here's What Anne Hathaway Studied In School

Anne Hathaway smiled her way into our hearts with her portrayal of Mia Thermopolis in Walt Disney's 2001 film "The Princess Diaries" (via IMDb). Since then, the mom to Jonathan and Jack with husband Adam Shulman has broken away from the geeky character with more "mature" roles in "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Witches" (via ET).

Hathaway — who got her breakout role in "The Devil Wears Prada" thanks to Meryl Streep — also showed her versatility by hosting the Oscars with James Franco, singing in "Les Miserables," and lending her voice to Jewel in "Rio 2," per IMDb. The mom, activist, and actress also took on the role of college student for some time as she pursued her degree. According to Insider, the "Rachel Getting Married" and "Love and Other Drugs" star enrolled, and attended college for a short time before taking a break from school to pursue her acting career.

Here's what Anne Hathaway studied in school.

Anne Hathaway studied English and women's studies

Actress Anne Hathaway studied at two schools: Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and New York University. Marie Claire reports the actress declared an English major with a minor in women's studies during her time at Vassar College before enrolling in New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

It's not surprising that Hathaway — who underwent a stunning transformation — studied women's studies at Vassar. The Academy Award-winner is an activist for the LGBTQ+ community, women, girls, and human rights. She was lauded for her activism in 2018 when she received the National Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign (via New York Post). She was appointed a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador in 2016 for her work to advocate and advance equality, per UN Women.

According to Seventeen, "The Dark Knight Rises” star did not complete her degree at NYU. While it's not clear whether or not she will finish her degree, the "The Devil Wears Prada" star enjoyed her time as a college student. She said, "College is such a unique time because you're learning a little bit how to be an adult. "You're learning how to take care of yourself without parental influence, and you [are] exposed to so many great minds. I feel like I didn't even know how to think until I got to college" (via Tradeschool).

Perhaps Hathaway will follow in her co-star Meryl Streep's footsteps and finish her degree. Streep graduated from Vassar College in 1972, per Insider.
