James Franco gets new degree in filmmaking from NYU

New York: James Franco never gets tired when it comes to education, and this time he has proved it again by graduating from NYU`s Tisch School of the Arts with a master`s degree in filmmaking.

But it`s not the end of the educational road for the actor, who had previously graduated in English from UCLA, or even the end of his time at NYU.

Franco will return to the campus this fall as a graduate instructor at the university`s Kanbar Institute of Film & Television, where he will reportedly help his students make a film adaptation of a Louise Glück poem, reports the New York Daily.

The ‘127 Hours’ star is still working towards a Ph.D. in English at Yale and was recently accepted into the University of Houston`s doctoral program in literature and creative writing. He was one of 20 people accepted into the program out of 400, and will enroll in September 2012.

"School is a way to take my other pursuits like directing and writing seriously," he told People Magazine last year.
