Brad Pitt (Education)

Actor, Producer

Undergraduate Education: Journalism (DROPOUT)

Pitt studied at The University of Missouri where he majored in journalism and was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. Pitt originally wanted to go into adverting and focused on advertising related courses while pursuing his degree. However, two weeks before graduating Pitt decided he was done with school and dropped out to attempt to become a professional actor. Pitt said he felt he was not ready to go out to the real world like many of his friends who were already committing to jobs right before graduation. When asked why he did not just finish off those last two weeks of school Pitt said, I just felt I was done; I was done with it. I knew where I wanted to go. I had a direction. I always liked those moments of epiphany when you have the next destination.
