Ashley Judd Harvard, Hollywood television and film actress Ashley Judd recently enrolled in the Harvard Kennedy School’s Mid-Career Master in Public Administration (MC/MPA) program, according to her publicist, Cara Tripicchio.

The Kennedy School declined to comment on Judd's enrollment in the program, which launched on July 22, but spokeswoman Molly Lanzarotta noted that the degree often attracts public officials and non-profit activists.

The MC/MPA is designed to "increase the knowledge and skills of well established, high-performing professionals, who seek to enhance their public service careers or to move from the private sector to a leadership position in either the public or non-profit sectors," according to the program's Web site.

Judd, born in Los Angeles in 1968, held key roles in "Heat," "Double Jeopardy," and "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood." She is also an active humanitarian, having served on the board of directors for healthcare nonprofit Population Services International since 2004. She was also Global Ambassador for YouthAIDS, the organization's HIV education and prevention program, and has traveled to a number of developing countries, including Thailand, Madagascar, and Rwanda.

Judd has spoken before the General Assembly of the United Nations about human trafficking, and VH1, The National Geographic Channel, and The Discovery Channel have aired documentaries highlighting her humanitarian activities.

The Boston Herald first reported Judd's enrollment at the Kennedy School last week.

Past recipients of master's degrees in Public Administration at the Kennedy School include Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Judd graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2007 with a degree in French after returning to the school to complete required coursework following a 17 year hiatus.
