New Jersey's Rutgers University will be soon offering a class on Beyonce entitled "Politicizing Beyonce," which will explore American race, gender and sexual politics in relation to the pop star's larger-than-life career. Kevin Allred, a Ph.D. student at Rutgers, developed the course out of his experience teaching Women Studies 101 at the university. The course will also discuss the "thin line" the pop star is said to walk when it comes to being a sexualized performer and a female role model, while Allred also states the class on Beyonce won't be about her political engagement.

Course topics will discuss Beyonce's control over her own image, and will pair the pop star's videos and lyrics with Black feminist readings.
