Very new user of LaTeX here making my first ever document using this typeset. I'm just about done, but am running into a really annoying issue with incorporating a course name and date on my title page. Heres my title page code:

        \documentclass[man]{apa7}
    
    
    
    \usepackage[tableposition=top]{caption}
    
    \usepackage[american]{babel}
    
    \usepackage{adjustbox}
    
    \usepackage{csquotes}
    
    \usepackage{float}
    
    \restylefloat{table}
    
    \usepackage[tableposition=top]{caption}
    
    \usepackage{textgreek}
    
    \usepackage{booktabs}
    
    \usepackage[style=apa]{biblatex}
    
    \addbibresource{references.bib}




\title{PAPER TITLE}

\shorttitle{RUNNING HEAD}



\author{AUTHORS}

\affiliation{AFFILIATION}

\setlength\intextsep{1mm}

\begin{document}

TEXT

\end{document}

Any time I try to add \date or \text{today's date} it either doesnt show up or will show up in the top right corner above my name and affiliation. I want a course name and date to appear below my name and affiliation as per apa 7 guidelines.
