A College Course in… Miley Cyrus?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yes–and it’s being offered by Skidmore College (come on, don’t laugh) in Saratoga Springs, New York, which bills itself as a liberal arts college.  No kidding.

The full name of the course is “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus:  Race, Class, Gender and Media” and will be taught by visiting assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff.  She says that the goal of the course will be to use Cyrus as a pivot point for discussion on gender, fame, power, class and race.

Oddly, twerking doesn’t seem to be anywhere in the course description.  But there has to be at least a class for two on “The Roll of the Tongue,” right?
