James Franco Is Getting Another Degree

Between being childish on Twitter, getting high, and being remarkably beautiful, I just don’t see where James Franco has the time for higher education.  But somehow he does, and before I let you know about his latest educational endeavors, I’m going to break down all his degrees and college experiences thus far, just for posterity, all right?

– James enrolled at UCLA in the fall of 2006, was allowed to take up to 62 credits per semester (the normal limit is 19) and graduated in 2008 with a degree in English and a GPA over 3.5.

– He then relocated to New York, attending NYU for filmmaking, Brooklyn College for fiction writing, and Columbia for a master’s in writing.  Every now and again he went to a college in North Carolina for poetry.  He received his MFA in 2010.

– Currently, James is working towards his doctorate in English at Yale while taking some time to do some studying at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Ok, that’s all his academic achievements as of right this minute. Except wait – James just got accepted to the University of Houston’s doctoral program in literature and creative writing. He was one of 20 applicants chosen out of 400, which either means that James is a damn good writer or the people over in Houston must really like General Hospital. Either way, I’m going to send James my very best wishes, mostly because I’m still dreaming of a Freaks and Geeks movie and I want James to be in the best possible condition when that day finally arrives.
