Angela Bassett – Yale University
Bassett attended Yale University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in African-American studies back in 1980. Then she went on to the Yale School of Drama to earn herself an M.F.A.
Elizabeth Banks – University of Pennsylvania
She might not have ever made it onto the big screen, but luck was in her favor. Had she not become a Hollywood star at least she would have had the backing of her major in communications and theater arts from the University of Pennsylvania. In 1996, Banks graduated magna cum laude.
