Angelina Jolie Pitt Adds Professor to Her Resume!

Angelina Jolie Pitt continues to impress with her range of pursuits and now she is adding the role of professor to her resume!

The 40-year-old actress and activist will become a visiting professor at the London School of Economics for the 2016-2017 school year.

Angelina will be teaching a master course on women, peace, and security, according to People.

“I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s programme. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as 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,” Angelina said 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.”

    Professor Jolie Pitt: Angelina Joins London School of Economics as Visiting Professor for New Women’s Study Program

    Angelina Jolie Pitt is taking her passion for women’s rights and gender equality to the classroom.

    The actress, 40, is set to join the London School of Economics as a visiting professor for the new masters course on women, peace and security for the 2016-2017 school year.

    As a visiting professor, Jolie Pitt will deliver guest lectures, participate in workshop and public events, and continue research on projects.

    “I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s programme. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as 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 Pitt said 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.”

    The course, which is the first of its kind internationally, was launched last year by Jolie Pitt and Britain’s former foreign secretary, William Hauge – who will also serve as a visiting professor.

    The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security Ambassador Melanne Verveer said they, too, are looking forward to bringing the program to the stateside campus.

    “I was pleased to meet with Angelina Jolie during my recent trip to London on ways we at Georgetown University can continue the collaboration between our sister programs on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Verveer. “We look forward to welcoming Angelina and former foreign secretary Hague to Georgetown in the future.”

    Whuh? Professor Jolie Pitt? Ruh roh! The FFers and trolls will be here forthwith, “She doesn’t even have a high school diploma so how the hell is she going to teach a graduate level college course?”

    So Angie, who doesn’t have a college degree at all, is going to be a “visiting professor” at the program she helped create at the LSE…and WLC, who has 2 advanced degrees, had to marry a rich old geezer and become a fameho to get a similar invite from Columbia.

    Now…does anyone really seriously think Angie has plans to be in either Captain Marvel or The Bride of Frankenstein? Exactly.

    She isn’t paid for this job though. Now she’d have to use Brad’s money to shop while she waits for Maleficent 2 LOL!
