For all the Harry Styles stans out there — there is an entire university course dedicated to the musician.

The class will be offered at Texas State University, with honors college students given first dibs followed by non-honors students, as long as they show an “outstanding talent in an area of interest.”

Taught by Associate Professor of Digital History Louie Dean Valencia, the course titled “Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet, and European Pop Culture” will cover the impact that Styles has had on European pop culture, including sexuality, fashion, fan culture and so much more.

“It’s official, official, I’m teaching the world’s first ever university course on the work of Harry Styles is happening Spring 2023 at TXST University,” Valencia announced on Twitter. In an interview with Sh-t You Should Care About, he shared that he has always been a huge fan of Styles, which is why he ended up creating the course. “I’ve been to several 1D shows and four shows since he’s been solo (with many more to come). Whilst doing concurrent research on the history of HIV/AIDS in Europe, this summer I’ve visited his hometown, an exhibition feature his fashion in London, and have seen him in Manchester and Paris. I will be seeing him in concert again next week in Madrid.”
