McConaughey has decided to impart his Oscar-winning talent to the younger generation. Matthew McConaughey’s passion for Texas has resulted in the actor joining the faculty of the University of Texas, Austin. He will teach at the Moody College of Communication as a professor of practice.
Though this is not going to McConaughey’s first mingling with the students of the school. He has been at the school as a visiting instructor since 2015 and served as the school’s ‘Minister of Culture’. McConaughey, a native of Texas, is also from UT, Austin. He had pursued bachelor’s of science in radio, television, and film and had graduated in 1993.
The school’s official Twitter account tweeted a group picture of McConaughey along with the students at the school. The school, through the tweet, announced that McConaughey would teach the “Script to Screen” film production class in the Department of Radio-Television-Film.

Eight years ago McConaughey moved to Austin with his wife and family. His wife Camila Alves had posted a video on Instagram to explain why they decided to move to Austin and also what changes have come at Austin.
The video was shot at an event for the McConaughey couple’s Just Keep Livin Foundation. In the video, McConaughey is seen telling, “Now with our massive growth we’re more than just a university town and a government town. We’re a tech town; we’re a business town; we’re a banking town and we’re a congested traffic town… but we don’t honk horns!”
McConaughey’s Just Keep Livin Foundation works to empower high school children to stay healthy and fit. Now looks like McConaughey will also help slightly older college students with his knowledge.
