If you need a cure for your “Summertime Sadness,” perhaps a course on Lana Del Rey will do the trick.

According to Variety, New York University’s Clive Davis Institute will be offering a class on the “Video Games” artist, set to run from October 20 through December 8.

NYU professor and writer Kathy Iandoli will teach the course titled “Topics in Recorded Music: Lana Del Rey.” 

“In so many ways, I feel like Lana Del Rey is both a blueprint and a cautionary tale, a complicated pop star who resonates so much with her fans, not because of how she makes them feel about her, but rather how she makes them feel about themselves,” Iandoli tells Variety. “There are so many pieces in this mosaic that we have now come to know as Lana Del Rey, and this course examines every dimension of it.”

The Clive Davis Institute previously offered a class on Taylor Swift.
