Matthew McConaughey Will Be a Full-Time Professor This Fall

Matthew McConaughey has a lot to be proud of including a Best Actor Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, but he might be even prouder of his Texas roots and his alma mater the University of Texas, where he earned a film degree in 1993.

Well, not only is Matthew a graduate of the UT, he’s now an official professor as well.

Professor McConaughey will be teaching full-time this fall in the department if Radio-Television and Film, where he’s been a visiting instructor since 2015.

The university said the decision was a no brainer in a statement, adding: "he’s earned respect for his willingness to work with students beyond the classroom."
