Ben Affleck will soon have something else to add to his long list of achievements. 

Along with novelist Junot Díaz and four other luminaries, the Oscar winner will be receiving an honorary doctorate degree from Brown University during their 245th Commencement on May 26, E! News confirms. 

According to the college's website, the actor and director will be awarded an honorary doctorate in fine arts.

Although Affleck is one heck of a speech-giver—as proven by his emotional delivery during the Academy Awards—the school states he won't be the commencement speaker.

The celeb's most recent work includes directing, producing and starring in the award-winning film Argoa historical drama based on the mission to rescue six Americans trapped in Iran during the hostage crisis in the 1980s.
