The Dallas Buyers Club star, who graduated from the school in 1993, will be returning to the campus to teach a filmmaking class this autumn (16).

The Oscar winner will be joined by Gary Ross, who directed him in new American Civil War film Free State of Jones, and both will be speaking to an upper-level class of 30 students.

A spokesperson for the university's Moody College of Communications said on Thursday (30Jun16) that through the course, students will get a behind-the-scenes look at Free State of Jones through recorded videos, which give an in-depth look at the filmmaking process.

MCConaughey is scheduled for at least one in-person lecture.

The actor previously teamed up with university professor Scott Rice to teach a similar course this past spring (16).
