We recently did a deep dive into the course data on SlugBooks and came up with some interesting findings.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, these are the schools across the country with the most courses featuring at least one of the Harry Potter books as required textbooks! A four year university education will never match up to the Hogwarts experience, but these colleges will get you close. Just don’t go walking around in an invisibility cloak - word on the street is that they don’t make them like they used to.
- University of Michigan (Ann Arbor): 6 Classes
- Eastern Michigan University: 5 Classes
- University of Pittsburgh: 5 Classes
- CSU Northridge: 4 Classes
- Indiana State University: 4 Classes
- Montana State University: 4 Classes
- Northern Kentucky University: 4 Classes
- San Jose State University: 4 Classes
- The College of New Jersey: 4 Classes
- University of North Carolina (Charlotte): 4 Classes
Other interesting Potterhead College stats:
- UC Davis is the only school in the University of California system that has required Harry Potter books in a course, over the last year.
- A tremendous eight colleges in the CSU (California State University) system required some form of Harry Potter reading in a class.
- Brown University, Harvard and Yale are the three ivy league schools requiring Harry Potter in a class in the last year.
- More than 325 classes across the country required some form of Harry Potter reading in the last year!
- Americans didn’t have all the fun - Canadian colleges had at least 12 classes also requiring HP as well.
Stay tuned for more textbook stats!
