US university offers Beyonce course

Beyonce's career is the subject of a new course at a US university.

The Department of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey is offering a course called Politicising Beyonce.

Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, told the university's news website that he wants to look at Beyonce's career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.

The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce's videos and lyrics with readings from Black feminists. Mr Allred said he is seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption.

The university also has a class examining the theology of Bruce Springsteen's lyrics.

Meanwhile, Georgetown University in Washington D.C. has a class called The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z, focusing on Beyonce's rapper husband.
