Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) -- Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, is offering a summer class about the Disney Princess turned twerker. 

According to the syllabus, the class will explore topics such as "gender stratification and the hyper-commodification of childhood," "bisexuality, queerness and the female body" and "what happens to Disney stars as they age."

The course's official title is The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media and will use Miley as a lens through which identity, entertainment, media and fame will be analyzed. 

In the age of Social Media, media representation is an important area of study and who has made more of a splash in the media lately than Miley Cyrus?
