Just let us adore him.

Texas State University in the US has announced it will hold a course on former One Direction singer Harry Styles.

"Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet and European Pop Culture" will explore Styles' music 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, and consumerism," according to a flyer shared by course instructor Louie Dean Valencia, an associate professor of digital history.

If you're wondering what the students will study when they enter a course on Harry’s House - worry no more.

Those who enrol in the class will study both his current music catalogue as well as his work in One Direction.

There will also be the bonus of looking at his acting career.

From war film Dunkirk to the upcoming Don’t Worry Darling and The Policeman, there’ll be plenty of golden moments for students to uncover.

"I've always wanted to teach a history class that is both fun, but also covers a period that students have lived through and relate to," Valencia told NBC New York.

"By studying the art, activism, consumerism, and fandom around Harry Styles, I think we'll be able to get to some very relevant contemporary issues. I think it's so important for young people to see what is important to them reflected in their curriculum."

"The classes are capped at 20 so we can have in-depth conversations," Valencia said. "There is a lot of demand, and I would love to teach it to a broader audience."

The foray into Harry’s world for studying isn’t just a sign of the times of change in the US education sector. 

Earlier this year, New York University's Clive Davis Institute launched a Taylor Swift class taught by Rolling Stone journalist Brittany Spanos.
