The course, which is being held by UT's Moody College of Communication, will take 30 students behind the scenes of McConaughey's latest film, Free State of Jones. Students will watch clips from the movie, followed by videos explaining why each scene was filmed in a certain way.
The Dallas Buyers Club star will lead the class alongside with Hunger Games director Gary Ross, who directed Free State, and university lecturer Scott Rice. The upper-level lecture will only be available to juniors and seniors, but there are no special prerequisites to enroll.
This isn't the Oscar-winning actor's first foray into teaching. In fact, the same course was offered during the spring 2016 semester. Students in that class were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement prior to enrolling, as Free State hadn't been released yet. The Confederate-era drama hit theaters last month, but students in the last class seemed pretty excited to get a preview, as they happily held up scripts in a photo shared to UT's Facebook page.
