College offers course on Miley Cyrus; no twerking required

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -- There could be some home "twerk" involved in a new college course on Miley Cyrus.

Skidmore College in upstate New York is offering a summer class on the 21-year-old pop star. The Saratogian newspaper reports the class is titled: "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media."

Visiting prof Carolyn Chernoff says she got the idea after using a video of Cyrus twerking in another class. But Chernoff says there won't be any required twerking in her course.

She says students will have learn to twerk on their own time.
