According to Rutgers the course will “explore American race, gender and sexual politics” and include looking at her alter-ego Sasha Fierce.

Kevin Allred, a doctoral student and lecturer in Rutgers’ Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, says: “This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend,” adding that students will have readings from the Black feminist canon, including the writings of bell hooks, Alice Walker, and even abolitionist Sojourner Truth.

NME reports the university also has a course in Bruce Springsteen Theology.
