"From Disney tween to twerking machine," the course description reads, going on to explain that Miley "provides rich examples for analysing aspects of intersectional identities and media representation."

The course will be headed up by assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff who hatched the idea after teaching a course on youth culture that featured video of Miley twerking at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

"I created it as a creative and rigorous way of looking at what's relevant about sociology and sociology theory," Chernoff The Daily Gazette.

"Miley Cyrus is a surprisingly complicated cultural moment," she explained. "We talk about [Miley's] sexuality, but we never talk about race and culture... I doubt any of us will get to know the real Miley... if there is one."

We're not sure about you but we're just about ready to sign up to this, but only after we've finished our course in "Feminist Perspectives: Politicising Beyonce".
