Copenhagen University offers course on Beyoncé

Students at Copenhagen University are being offered classes on “Beyoncé”. Already 75 students at the university – have signed up for the course. The class, entitled “Beyoncé, Gender and Race”, will be taught in much the same way as other cultural courses such as opera, according to reports. Such is the interest in the class that it has been moved to a larger lecture hall. Copenhagen is not even breaking new ground. Rutgers University in New Jersey launched a Beyoncé course several years ago. Not to be outdone, Staffordshire's University offered a course in David Beckham studies in which participants explored some of the sociological implications behind society’s obsession with footballers.
