University offers class on Lady Gaga and fame
The University of South Carolina will offer a sociology class in all things Gaga next semester, Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame.
■Class discussion: How would you explain to your parents that this is the class you're taking next year and they're paying for it? Is there a place in college curriculum for classes on pop culture? How does this prepare you for the future? Or is it just fun, albeit expensive fun?
