SARASOTA SPRINGS, NY (KPRC) - A liberal arts college in upstate New York is offering a course on the sociology of Miley Cyrus this summer.

No twerking required.

The course, titled "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media," will be offered by Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, the Saratogian newspaper reported.

Visiting Assistant Professor Carolyn Chernoff said she plans to use the controversial 21-year-old pop star as "a lens into cultural conflict."
