Skidmore 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 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."
