A new course based on the work of Harry Styles has been announced by a university in Texas, which will being in 2023.

The course, titled Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet, and European Pop Culture will be on offer at Texas State University Honours College from next spring.

Dr Louie Dean Valencia announced the news on Twitter, citing it as the first course of its kind.

Dr Valencia wrote: “It’s official, official. I’m the world’s first ever university course on the work of #HarryStyles.

“It’s happening Spring 2023 at @TXST University. This is what tenure looks like. Let’s gooooo!”

He also shared the course description, which reads: “This course focuses on British musician Harry Styles and popular European culture to understand the cultural and political development of the modern celebrity as related to questions of gender and sexuality, race, class, nation and globalism, media, fashion, fan culture, internet culture, and consumerism.”

Styles first made a name for himself as part of the band One Direction and has since gone on to have a successful solo career.

In terms of acting, he has appeared in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, and is set to feature in two 2022 releases in Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman.
