Angelina Jolie Can Now Add Professor to Her Resume
Is there anything Angelina Jolie can't do?
The actress and humanitarian can now add London School of Economics Professor to her resume. She will serve as a visiting professor next year. She will teach a Master's course on women, peace and security, which will be run by the school's Centre for Women, Peace and Security.
Jolie and William Hague, Britain's former foreign secretary, launched the center in 2015.
"It is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women's rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict," Jolie, a special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, said in a statement on Monday. "I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students, as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations."
Jolie started as a visiting professor this week at London School of Economics and Political Science where she is teaching a course at the Centre for Women, Peace, and Security.
In addition to giving lectures and taking part in workshops, Jolie will be conducting research in the area. The campus is also introducing a new master's program in the area of Women, Peace, and Security, the first in the world and Jolie has expressed her support for the program that will start in September.
"I'm a little nervous, feeling butterflies," Jolie said in an interview with the UK's The Evening Standard. "I hope I do well. This is very important to me."
