Rutgers University offers class on Beyoncé

Have you ever dreamed of getting a degree in — Beyoncé?

Well now you (sort of) can: Rutgers University is reportedly offering a course on the megastar as part of its Women and Gender studies program.

The class, called "Politicizing Beyoncé,” will have students learn about the pop mogul’s music reign while exploring how her image and music have impacted the world.

"Beyoncé is the most powerful force in music today, and her music proves to be a really productive and interesting space to interrogate the political realities of black women — as well as other minority groups — in the United States today," explained lecturer and PhD candidate Kevin Allred.

But for those hoping to pull an A by watching music videos and dancing to “Single Ladies,” Kevin warns that Beyoncé 101 isn’t just a fluff course.

"This isn't a course about Beyoncé's political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama's inauguration weekend," he said.

"Rather, the performer's music and career are used as lenses to explore American race, gender and sexual politics."

This isn’t the first time a university has offered strange courses based on pop culture. Georgetown University offers a class on Mrs. Carter's husband called, "The Sociology of Hip-Hop: Jay Z" and Montreal’s own Concordia University once offered a course called “Music of the Beatles.”
