Angelina Jolie has already accomplished many things in her 41 years: she's an Oscar winner, a U.N. Special Envoy, the mother of six, and she has Brad Pitt as icing on the cake.

Now, Jolie will add another feather to her cap — or mortarboard — when she becomes a visiting professor at Georgetown University in the fall.

Jolie already did a stint at the London School of Economics in May, but this will be her first turn as a professor in the U.S., where Us Weekly reports she will "share her knowledge in lectures, workshops, and research focused on women, peace, and security."

In May, the superstar — who never graduated college herself — explained her decision for taking on the teaching role in a statement: "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. I am looking forward to teaching and learning from the students, as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations."

Melanne Verveer, Executive Director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, said after meeting Jolie, "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."
