If your parents are paying for your tuition, you might not want to tell them you're taking this class...A college in New York is now letting you major in Miley Cyrus...well, sort of.

The Saratogian newspaper reports that Skidmore College, a private liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs is offering a summer course on all things Miley called "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media."

"You can study a lot of things based on Miley," reads assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff's course description. She's the one who will be teaching the class.

"Miley Cyrus has grown up in the public eye, trying on and discarding very different identities onscreen and off...She provides rich examples for analyzing aspects of intersectional identities and media representation...I created it as a creative and rigorous way of looking at what's relevant about sociology and sociology theory," the professor told a local paper about the course.

"Miley Cyrus is a surprisingly complicated cultural moment...We talk about [Miley's] sexuality, but we never talk about race and culture ... I doubt any of us will get to know the real Miley... if there is one," she added.

Don't worry, there won't be any twerking involved. "Sorry, dudes, but this is sociology. Learn to twerk on your own time," the teacher made sure to point out.
