Apparently, Harvard is where the heart is.

First Natalie Portman earned her bachelor's degree from the Ivy League university, and now her Where the Heart Is costar, Ashley Judd, is headed to Cambridge, Mass., for a master's.

The 41-year-old has enrolled in the university's John F. Kennedy School of Government for a mid-career master's degree in public administration, her rep, Cara Tripicchio, confirmed to the Harvard Crimson.

The star, best known for female-centric thrillers like Double Jeopardy, has spent much of the past few years off screen, focusing further on humanitarian efforts. She currently serves as a Global Ambassador for YouthAIDS and has spoken before the United Nations about human trafficking. Presumably, this additional decree will further her endeavors.

Judd has a bachelor's degree in French from the University of Kentucky.
