Actress SHANNEN DOHERTY is heading back to school to pursue a college degree in liberal arts.
The former Beverly Hills, 90210, star has signed up to front an advertising campaign for online organisation Education Connection and, as part of her new role as company spokesperson, she's furthering her own learning and encouraging fans to follow her lead.
In the promotional video, she says, "I've played the girl-next-door and the girl-not-so-next-door. I've produced, I've directed, but now I'm doing something I've always wanted to do for me – I'm on my way to getting my college degree.
"I logged onto Education Connection, the free service that showed me hundreds of schools and degrees so I could pick the right one. Now I'm actually getting my degree in liberal arts – online! But you can get yours in business, in culinary arts, in nursing, in criminal justice, even a degree in technology.
"For my schedule, Education Connection showed me online has the most flexibility. I can study on the set, while travelling – anywhere, anytime. So do something smart for your future. Let Education Connection help you find the right program for free."
