You might want to think about going back to college. Students at the University of Copenhagen now have the honor of studying the one and only Beyoncé as part of their curriculum.
The Department of Arts and Cultural Studies class, titled “Beyoncé, Gender and Race,” already has 75 students registered for the upcoming semester, according to local news outlet TV2.
Professor Erik Steinskog, who is teaching the class, says it will focus on the singer’s impact on on gender, sexuality and race by analysis of her work: “One of the goals [of the class] is to introduce black feminist thought, which is not well known in Scandinavia. We want to explore the kind of entity feminism is,” he told TV2.
He said the class will be taught using similar methods classes use to teach literature or classical music.
After all, she’s Queen B. Her art is the art of the ages. We can only hope it will be around for archeologists to find.
Steinskog himself is a self-professed member of the Beyhive. He told TV2, “It is hard not to be impressed. She is extremely good at what she does.”
The class has been doubled in size and moved to a larger lecture hall due to overwhelming interest, according to the University of Copenhagen’s campus magazine. At the moment, the class has reached maximum registration levels.
Looks like people are just crazy in love with this class.
