Arizona State University has introduced an intriguing course focused on the psychology of global pop sensation Taylor Swift.

The program, titled "Psychology of Taylor Swift — Advanced Topics of Social Psychology," will commence in September.

Leading the course is Alexandra Wormley, a dedicated PhD student in Psychology at ASU's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Alexandra's inspiration for this unique course stemmed from Taylor Swift's concert tour, The Eras, which made a stop in Glendale, Arizona.

After the show, Alexandra's research assistants playfully suggested the idea of a course centered around the pop star.

She embraced the concept, creating an initial course outline and presenting it to her department. The idea was well-received, leading to the course's creation.

In this innovative class, students can anticipate in-depth exploration of specific topics, fostering expertise in each area over the course of a week.

Alexandra believes that this focused approach is more engaging than traditional survey courses, allowing students to delve into themes from Taylor Swift's albums and their connections to social psychology concepts.

Alexandra also revealed that her partner's sister, a dedicated Taylor Swift fan, played a pivotal role in shaping the course's content.

Her partner's sister's infectious enthusiasm for the artist transformed Alexandra from a casual listener to one of Taylor Swift's top Spotify fans.

Recently concluding the 2023 US leg of The Eras Tour, Taylor Swift's tour is predicted to become the most monumental tour in history for any artist.
