Harry Styles is one of the biggest pop stars in the world. Styles has a huge fan base, and they are always looking forward to his live performance. The first-ever college course devoted to British pop artist Harry Styles will be offered to students at a university in Texas in the spring of 2023.

According to a course description published by Valencia, the class will center on Styles and how his work interacts with contemporary celebrity, fan culture, gender and sexuality, culture and consumerism, and other topics. Assistant professor of digital history Dr. Louie Dean Valencia recently announced the introduction of the course on Twitter.

“Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet, and European Pop Culture,” will be available for honors students at Texas State University in Spring 2023.

Valencia said that the course will not concentrate on Styles’ personal life. It will instead explore his art and activism as well as the books, ideas, and music that he has acknowledged as having influenced his career, as well as his gender-neutral cosmetics line. Students will research Styles “in the way we study the work of Shakespeare, Toni Morrision, Virginia Wolf or any great artist.” according to Valencia.

The course will count toward the graduation requirements for gender and women’s studies, popular culture studies, international or European studies, world or European history, and honors studies. Styles is the most recent musician whose body of work is the subject of an entire college course. Brittany Spano, a reporter for Rolling Stone, began teaching a Taylor Swift course at New York University earlier this year.
