Imagine walking into your first college class and Matthew McConaughey is your professor. Even though this may seem like a Magic Mike-inspired daydream, it’s a reality for students at the University of Texas at Austin.

The University recently announced, via Twitter, “In recognition of his professional pedigree and personal investment in student success, Matthew McConaughey has been appointed a #TEXASMoody professor of practice.”

This isn’t the first time that McConaughey, who graduated from the University of Texas in 1993, has taught at the school. According to the University’s website, “McConaughey joined the faculty in the Department of Radio-Television-Film in fall 2019 after serving as a visiting instructor since 2015, when he began co-teaching the “Script to Screen” film production class with lecturer and director Scott Rice.”

Not only has McConaughey taught the “Script to Screen” class previously, but the actor also helped to develop the course’s curriculum. While we’re pretty sure McConaughey’s class is a super-popular pick, it’s only open to upper-division students in the Department of Radio-Television-Film.
