Matthew-McConaughey-Is-Teaching-a-Class-at-the-University-of-Texas-at-Austin

Say what you want about his bourbon ambassadorships, his Lincoln commercials, or the television shows and films he’s starred in–Matthew McConaughey has done quite a few interesting things over the course of his career. But the most interesting feather in his cap isn’t anything we just laid out, it’s his new gig as the Script to Screen professor for the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. The Oscar-winning actor and Department of Radio-Television-Film alumnus (he graduated in ’93) is paying it back to his alma mater by teaching a class based on some of his previous works that aims to help students deal with some of the same questions he had when he was their age. No word yet on whether or not the class will be graded on a flat circle, but based on the current Rate My Professor reviews, it’s only 2.3 on the level of difficulty and it’s “all write, all write, all write.”
