Harvard offers new class on Taylor Swift

Elizabeth Jarnot
Harvard now offers a Taylor Swift based course for all Swifties.

Harvard University announced last month that professor Stephanie Burt will be teaching a course called “Taylor Swift and Her World” next semester.

The class will be based on Swift’s career, her most well-known work and her literature.

I feel like there’s a lot to be said about her lyricism, and I think it would be fun to take a class to explore Swift and the meaning behind her music.

When Harvard announced their new class, the course immediately filled up with Swift super fans. The course currently holds nearly 300 students. 

I am not shocked that a class on Taylor Swift would have so many people interested.

— SHS senior, Lily Warnert

The class is held two times a week for 75 minutes. “To those of you rolling your eyes, know that this class is far more than a dance party and series of clever puns”, says Today reporter
