(CNN)Ashley Judd is becoming a student again.
The actress announced in a Facebook Live on Monday that she is pursuing a PhD in public policy at University of California, Berkeley this fall.
"I have decided to take the next step in my academic journey," Judd said before adding, "Sometimes I'm like, 'What have I gotten myself into?' I'm very esteemed and honored they've accepted me," she said.
Judd, who has a master's degree in public administration from Harvard University, apparently has a playful attitude about her studies.
"I will be taking my Hello Kitty bicycle with me, just like when I went to Harvard," she said. "And yes, my dad will be coming with me to classes, again. Yes, I have a backpack, and yes, I have a locker. And no, I don't have my outfit for the first day of school picked out."
