You’re a wizard, Harry… I’m a what?

It’s true, you could finally fulfill your wizardly dreams.

How?

A professor at Vanderbilt University offers a course called “Harry Potter and Child Development” which uses science and developmental psychology to relay the behaviors of the characters in the books to students.

As most of us know, the books are centered around Harry, who after a traumatic event and years of misery living at a relative’s house, had the resilience to overcome it all and become the hero. The course also uses the correlation between Harry and a 30-year study longitudinal study that followed children on a Hawaiian island.

Are you such a big fan that you would ace this course?
