Matthew McConaughey is back to his University in Texas which he graduated in 1993 after getting a degree in film. Now he is a full-time film professor at the Department of Radio-Television-Film in the Moody College of Communication.
McConaughey has already been a visiting professor in the past 4 years but now he got an official recognition as Jay Bernhardt, Dean of Moody College said: “We are proud to welcome Professor McConaughey to officially join our world-class faculty. Matthew cares deeply for our school and our students, and we are thrilled that he shares his time and talent to help prepare the next generation of media leaders and innovators.”
The famous actor is has appeared in about 50 movies and tv series, won an Oscar for his memorable role in “Dallas Buyers Club” and his role as a broker in wall street in “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
The new professor published a statement – “It’s the class I wish I would have had when I was in film school. Working in the classroom with these students gives me a chance to prepare them. Making movies, turning words on paper into film, is both a science and art – no matter the time or generation. The elements of truth and genuine joy for the process are timeless. That will always be our classroom focus.”
We are sure most students just appreciate the fact that they can learn from one of the best actors in Hollywood and only the future will tell if McConaughey could pass his knowledge to the next generation and will be able to shape our culture through his students.
