Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, said:
Steven is quite simply one of the country’s greatest screenwriters and through his work on both the small and big screen he has brought joy to millions of viewers worldwide.

He is a further example of success from our wonderful town of Paisley in a long line of truly successful people brought up in the town.

Steven is great role model for anyone, not just our students, and demonstrates that your path in life will be determined by your own passion for the things you believe in and that anyone can have success if they work hard.

Steven is a hugely deserving recipient of this Honorary Doctorate and we are delighted to honour him in his home town.

The graduation ceremony takes place at Thomas Coats Memorial Baptist Church in Moffat's home town of Paisley on Tuesday 5th July. The writer said:
It's always a joy to go home - but to go back to Paisley to receive a doctorate feels like I finally made it. I feel very honoured, and more importantly very happy.
