  • ikeepempressedt

    This is actually very interesting. Not interesting enough to be a course in college but…. interesting..

    How will this course help you in life? You won’t earn an actual job. I concur holyhysteria with her comment. People are stupid when it comes to Miley Cyrus. Ugh.

      Since it is a Sociology class it is probably geared towards people who will be future child stars’ managers and PR people…. I am just trying to give this Carolyn Chernoff the benefit of the doubt here… lol.

    I learned the hard way: Those courses are actually very difficult. I got a C- in mine. I was expecting a definite A.

    omg chill guys it’s not like anyone’s resume is going to say they took a class on miley cyrus lmfao it’s just for the credit. lots of schools have cool fun classes like that. i’ve heard of there being a harry potter class somewhere. my school has a class all about cuss words and I’m currently taking a class called Does ET Exist? you need a fun class or two so you don’t go insane in college. calm down

    • amanda

      you’re right. My public university offers a class for freshman that is geared around Harry Potter! wish i would of taken it.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes


  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    • thecat61

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

  • Eva

    I think people are missing the point of the class, as usual.

    • thecat61

      Go figure!

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Not gonna lie, I’d take this class tho. Especially in comparison to some of the fucking shitty ass classes I had to take.

    • threelittlebirds

    It’s actually something really smart tbh. It’s sociolog applied to a public and real case that people find really interesting and you cant even deny that since people who comment here are the living proof of that lmao.

    The people who think that this class won’t help you get a job, is a waste of money, or is stupid must not know a lot about college classes. Many colleges offer classes with interesting topics or titles like this one. The Miley class will fulfill a sociology credit of some sort for the people at the college. It is the application of sociology to the real world and it will help them earn a sociology degree. At my college we have a class called “INTRO TO SOCIOLOGY: THROUGH HBO’S THE WIRE”. It’s not like all of the sociology classes are like that. Schools just offer a few classes like that. It isn’t going to be a joke class. They are just studying sociology with Miley as the focus of their analysis.

    • Dara

      I think we all realize that. But why Miley Cyrus of all people?

      • guest

        because the professor wanted to and they can do whatever they want.
