That’s right. A UK college will be offering the first ever ‘selfie course’ this March .

The City Lit College will begin its course called ‘The Art of Photographic self-portraiture’ this year which help students better “improve critical understanding of the photographic self-portrait, reported Telegraph.

Not only will students be able to explore notions of identity, selfhood and memory, they should also be prepared to look at past work in selfies and thus evaluate their previous photography, said the report. 

Apart from this, students will also need to “critique” work done by a variety of practioners, a list that include Ellen Degeneres, whose Oscar selfie became one of the most retweeted ever and Kim Kardashian.
