Matthew McConaughey Is Now A College Professor, And His Class Sounds Alright, Alright, Alright

Ashley (Kimber)

When I first met my husband, I thought he gave off “Matthew McConaughey vibes.” Basically, love at first sight.

Meaning…I would 100% take his class at the University of Texas. I mean… it sounds RAD. SO SO SO RAD.

According to Daily Caller:

Matthew McConaughey is officially a professor at the University of Texas.

The legendary actor had already been doing some guest lecturing for the Longhorns, but now he’s got a major upgrade in the job title department.

UTNews.edu announced the following about McConaughey’s new job on Wednesday:

In recognition of his outstanding work as a teacher and mentor to University of Texas students, and with respect to his career as an award-winning actor and producer, Matthew McConaughey has been appointed as a professor of practice at the Moody College of Communication starting in the fall 2019 term.

McConaughey joins the faculty in the Department of Radio-Television-Film after serving as a visiting instructor since 2015, when he began co-teaching the Script to Screen film production class with faculty member and director Scott Rice. He developed the course’s curriculum, which provides a unique, behind-the-scenes view of each stage of a film’s production.

I took film classes in college and LOOOOVED them, so this actually sounds like a dream.

(To those of you who are about to b*tch about film classes – I believe the art/film of an era and the history of an era are intrinsically linked. To know one, you must know the other. Maybe AOC would know millennials weren’t the first generation of young people to protest if she would have watched more films about ‘Nam, you know?)

So to this, I say:

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT.
