With courses on David Beckham, Harry Potter and politicising Beyoncé on offer at prestigious universities, it comes as no surprise that students are now able to learn the art of the perfect 'selfie'.
Budding photographers will be taught valuable life skills to prepare them to face an expectant world which could present a photo opportunity at any point as part of a new City Lit course in London.
As well as offering guidance on the most flattering angles and lighting, the course - officially called 'The art of self portraiture' – promises to 'improve your critical understanding' of the 'selfie'.
The path to the perfect profile picture will cost you just £132 (£106 for seniors) – but potential students should be warned that it does not come with a free 'selfie' stick.
It is open to all, including those who have only 'engaged in self-portrait –even in the most casual way'.
But the 'selfie' enthusiasts must be prepared to share their snaps, as organisers said a critique of students' work would form an important role in the learning process.
Over four sessions, students will be taught to 'use light and significant detail' in their work and 'explain ideas of space, place and surrounding issues'.
