Alert the nation’s student-loan officers: We’re all going back to college immediately, because the University of Texas at San Antonio is now offering a class on Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

The class, called Black Women, Beyoncé, and Popular Culture, will “explore the theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism” featured prominently in Queen Bey’s 55-minute avant-garde film, Cosmopolitan reports. Developed by Professor Kinitra Brooks, the class will meet three times a week and be organized around different themes that appear in Bey’s epic, according to the syllabus.

Of course, this isn’t the first time a college has had this idea — Rutgers University offered a class called Politicizing Beyoncé in 2014. But this is one step closer to the dream of a degree in Beyoncé studies.

Can’t wait to spend a semester rewatching Lemonade in the quad.
