James Franco is one of Hollywood’s top celebrities these days.  He has appeared in many movies including 127 Hours, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Milk, and Pineapple Express to name but a few.  He is also a writer-producer and director!!  As well as these monumental tasks he has appeared on Saturday Night Live and hosted the Oscars!

When he’s not busy with these time consuming tasks James has put a major focus on college and education.  And this has been a priority in his life right up till the present.

His first college experience was as an English major with an emphasis on creative writing.  This was undertaken at UCLA in 2006.  He continues to act throughout this time often studied during breaks even during basketball season.  In 2008 he received his undergraduate degree from UCLA with a GPA of over 3.5.

He then moved to New York City and undertook a graduate degree at Columbia University enrolled on the MFA writing program.  At this time he was also enrolled at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts studying film making and Brooklyn College studying fiction writing, and also attending North Carolina’s Warren Wilson College for poetry.

In 2010 he received his MFA from Columbia University and has since enrolled in the PhD program at Yale University.  In 2012 he plans to attend the University of Houston where he has been accepted into the PhD program for literature and creative writing.

As well as this he will be teaching a fall course in poetry and short films at NYU.

Franco’s philosophy on education is that he loves attending school and sharing his interests with others.  He loves the subjects that he studies which makes a big difference.  He also credits it with helping his acting career.
