*Let Beyonce’s career be a lesson!

No, really.

Rutgers University announced they will offer Politicizing Beyonce, a course that will “explore American race, gender and sexual politics,” and include a section on the singer’s brash alter-ego, Sasha Fierce.

“This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend,” Kevin Allred, a doctoral student and lecturer in Rutgers’ Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, said in a statement.

He added that students will have readings from the black feminist canon, including the writings of bell hooks, Alice Walker and abolitionist Sojourner Truth.
