The Sociology Of Miley Cyrus: Actually Offered at Skidmore College!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Most students try to avoid summer school.

But Skidmore College may see a rise in applications this year, thanks to a course offered by Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology Carolyn Chernoff.

It's titled "The Sociology Of Miley Cyrus."

The Sociology of Miley Cyrus Syllabus

As you can see in the syllabus above, the class will not teach Twerking or spitting on audience members.

Instead, it will focus on the “rise of the Disney Princess,” while taking a look at other stars (such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) and also teaching:

  • Gender stratification and the hyper-commodification of childhood.
  • Different kinds of transitions to adulthood.
  • Allies and appropriation.
  • Uses of culture across race, class, and gender.
  • Bisexuality, queerness and the female body.

Rutgers University, meanwhile, is bringing back a course titled “Politicizing Beyonce."

Where do you stand on college curriculum being based on the lives of celebrities?

Would you take any of the following courses?

The re-marketing of a course that is basically "The Sociology of Pop Culture" apparently had to be dumbed down either A) youth are more stupid than we thought or B) enrollment for the Soc. Department is down and they needed something to attract new students. Either way I would sign up for the class, but I have a Sociology degree and enjoy most courses that provide insight into the influences of pop culture.

Miley is ruining her fan base with all the weird face and tongue actions. It is like she wants to drive people away or taken so many drugs that she doesnt know what she is doing. I don't think too many people will want to take a psychology class about Miley because she is so stupid and weird that no one cares anymore. She went from Disney Princess that people liked to a drugged out acting moron.,that drove people off, by acting too weird.
