Stanford Now Offering A Taylor Swift Course

Students at Stanford University can soon take a new course on Taylor Swift. Starting this winter, the course "All Too Well (Ten Week Version)" will offer an in-depth analysis of the singer's newest album. 

Ava Jeffs will teach the class. She says one of the lessons that will be covered highlights the concept of Swift's musical eras. For those who question why studying a pop star is important, Jeffs points out that Tay nailed what a girl’s childhood looks like in her songs.

The class is part of a group of courses taught by the university's students and alumni.

NYU began offering a Taylor Swift class last Fall. “This course proposes to deconstruct both the appeal and aversions to Taylor Swift through close readings of her music and public discourse as it relates to her own growth as an artist and a celebrity. 

University of Texas began teaching a Swift class last Fall as well. Swift's lyrics will be compared to famous poets such as Shakespeare, Wyatt, Coleridge, Keats, Dickinson and Plath.

University of South Carolina made international news when they began teaching a course on Lady Gaga back in 2010.
