Upstate college to offer course on Miley Cyrus

Saratoga Springs, N.Y. (AP) -- A college in upstate New York is offering a summer course on Miley Cyrus, but the professor teaching the class says students won't be required to twerk.

The Saratogian newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1rEU9Og ) that the course will be offered by Skidmore College, a private, liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs.

Visiting Assistant Professor Carolyn Chernoff calls the course "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media."

Chernoff says she'll focus on the 21-year-old performer and all her incarnations as a way to study such topics as gender, race, class, fame and power.

She says she got the idea after teaching a course on youth culture that featured video of Cyrus twerking at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

As for twerking in class, Chernoff says: "Sorry, dudes, but this is sociology. Learn to twerk on your own time."
