Twerking 101—Skidmore College Is Offering A Course On ’The Sociology Of Miley Cyrus'

Like PopDust on Facebook

If you are still kicking yourself for having missed out on the Rutgers Beyonce class—never fear—if you get a move on you may still be able to enroll in Skidmore’s Miley Cyrus class.

Yep. Really.

Buzzfeed reports that the college is offering a course this summer, titled, "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender, and Media."

A college student tweeted a photo of the course syllabus, which will cover "the rise of the Disney Princess," and claims, "Ongoing media frenzy focused on Miley Cyrus's public image, music, and body highlights the ways in which intersectional identities are shaped by pop culture and mass media."

And, if you are not already filling out your online application perhaps the inclusion of Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera  as extra areas of study will give you some extra incentive.

Visiting professor, Carolyn Chernoff, will be teaching the class and it seems that she’s very well qualified to wax lyrical when it comes to matters of the Cyrus—at least judging by her college bio.

"I investigate the role of culture in reproducing and transforming social inequality, and research conflict around diversity and difference."
