“US university offers course in Taylor Swift”
Taylor Swift’s songwriting is to be the subject of a new literature course at a Texas university.
The course, called The Taylor Swift Songbook, will be offered at the University of Texas at Austin (UTA) from this autumn.
It means the pop megastar’s songs will be studied alongside other literary giants such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Coleridge, and Keats.
The course says it will use “the songwriting of Taylor Swift to introduce literary critical reading and research methods,” according to a description on the UTA website.
Students will study Swift’s albums Red, Lover, Folklore and Evermore.
UTA follows in the footsteps of New York University, which previously offered a course on Swift as a music entrepreneur.
