Emma Watson Dishes On Brown College Plans!

It turns out Emma Watson may just be as studious as her most famous role in Hermione Granger!

Despite being a lauded actress and a millionaire many times over for her work in Harry Potter, Emma still values her education above all!

That's why she's returning to Brown College this fall! So what can Brown do for Emma? She says:

"I really like the fact that it has a very open curriculum, that there aren't any requirements. Really, I've kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on Potter when I was 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, and I could take independent studies if I wanted to on subjects that weren't necessarily in the curriculum. I did an independent study on the psychology and philosophy of how and why we fall in love, which was awesome."

Sounds like an independent study we might have taken a time or two! But Emma also admits her previous success and financial independence make the study that much more fun. She says:

"Opportunities like that, and the idea of classes being pass/fail, make it sound as if you don't have to work as hard, but it actually gives you the freedom to try out things that you wouldn't be able to do if you had to get a certain GPA on your transcript. It lets you take classes that you wouldn't otherwise. And it attracts a certain type of student: [someone] very independent who wants to take responsibility and control of what they're learning. That really appealed to me, as well."

We applaud Emma's devotion to learning and hope more young stars follow her lead! Just remember- it's wingardium leviOHsa, not leviosAH! LOLz!

    This little girl tries so hard to be a woman.

    After doing Perks of Being a Wallflower, I say that Emma can do whatever she wants for the rest of her life. She was so great in that, she's gold for good. Cheers!

    Re: pollopicu – No she doesn't. She acts while she works towards a degree, and behaves and dresses with class and decorum; and she's a beauty.

    I got a lot of respect for her, a degree isn't something she needs, but truly desires. Hell, she even took a J-Term class at NYU earlier this year. I would be surprised if by this time next year we aren't calling Emma a Brown Alum!

    It's Brown university, not Brown college, just fyi.

    It's just nice seeing an actor value and education that they could probably get away without having. It's like supporting intelligent people.

    And then there's you, Perez, mistaking the name of Brown University, an Ivy League school.

    Congrats to her, have heard it is a great school.
    I got offered a scholarship a long time ago there in high school but my parents would not let me go (I live in SoCal and was under 18 at the time, so nothing I could do).
