(CNN)If you’re reading this, it’s too late. Unless you’re an undergraduate student at a university in Canada who is about to get the chance to study Drake.

Ryerson University’s The Creative School is now offering a course that will delve into the lives and musical talents of Toronto-born musical artists Drake and the Weeknd, the university announced in a news release.
The course, called “Deconstructing Drake & The Weeknd,” will be offered in the Winter semester beginning January 2022, according to Ryerson Professor-In-Residence Dalton Higgins, who will be teaching the class.
“It’s time to get our Canadian rap and R&B icons recognized and canonized academically or otherwise,” Higgins said. “And it is critical for scholars and historians to examine the Toronto music scene that birthed Drake/Weeknd and helped create the conditions for them to become mega-successful.”
The class will be offered as one of the flagship courses for The Creative School’s Professional Music BA program, Canada’s “first transdisciplinary professional music undergraduate program,” according to the university.
“Even before registration opens, the enthusiasm for the class is already quite significant so I have a feeling it’ll pack up very quickly,” The Creative School Dean Charles Falzon told CNN.
