In addition to being an actress, director, UNHCR special envoy, super-mom, menopause spokeswoman, and maker of an expressively fruit-forward rosé, Angelina Jolie is adding college professor to her résumé.

Starting in 2017, Jolie will serve as a visiting professor for a new master’s class on women, peace, and security at the London School of Economics, alongside former British foreign secretary William Hague.

“It is vital 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,” said Jolie in a statement. “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.”

According to an LSE spokeswoman, Jolie and Hague will both teach “at least once a year, for each year of their fellowship,” so skip class at your peril.
