Students attending the liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., can take a class this summer called "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media."
The course will be held for 2 1/2 hours, three days a week.
Instructor Carolyn Chernoff told local paper The Daily Gazette that students shouldn't expect to attend a blow-off class.
"I created it as a creative and rigorous way of looking at what's relevant about sociology and sociology theory," Chernoff said. "Miley Cyrus is a surprisingly complicated cultural moment."
No word yet on whether a follow-up course on twerking will be offered.
