KVUE — He certainly doesn't need the money, but now we know how much Matthew McConaughey will make as a faculty member at the University of Texas.

He'll make $12,009.60 a year — about $6,000 a semester — for teaching film classes at the Moody College of Communication.

He's been a guest instructor since 2015, but this is his first semester as a full-time staff member.

Last month, UT announced McConaughey would be joining the university’s faculty starting in the fall.

McConaughey has been co-teaching the Script to Screen film production class at the university with Scott Rice. He developed the course’s curriculum and provided a unique, behind-the-scenes view of each stage of a film’s production, the university said.

“He has a passion for teaching, and for all things cinematic, that is palpable, even infectious,” said Noah Isenberg, chair of the Department of Radio-Television-Film.
