Digging deep into the psyche of Kanye West would definitely be an interesting experience.

From his thoughts on art and politics and his cryptic Twitter presence to that massive ego, love him or hate him, Kanye is a pretty fascinating creature. 

Clearly Washington University agrees, as they have created a course called "Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics."

Not that Kanye needs anyone else calling him a genius, but professor Jefffrey McCune, who founded the course, hopes to look at the rappers impact on society through the 14-week course. 

The course will also use Kanye's hip hop influence as a vehicle to explore other areas of society like sexuality and culture.

And yes, there will be a Taylor Swift module.

“I knew my students had connections to Kanye,” professor McCune told Time

“They’re always referencing his music and performances and videos and fashion." 

"What better time than now to take seriously Kanye West as a cultural icon? I’m always interested in how he’s pushing whatever boundaries.”

While there is no disputing that Yeezus is seen by many as a cultural icon, what can one do with a degree in Kanye West though? 


Why bother spending all of your college years learning about pi when you can learn about delicious pizza. 

An English university has just announced that it is are offering 1,500 students the chance to take an apprenticeship with Pizza Hut.

The Manchester Metropolitan University course will run over the next five years, with some students studying the cheesy course in the university and others going to an actual Pizza Hut restaurant.

But how to nail the perfect pizza isn't the only thing on the students curriculum. The course will also focus on food production and financial analysis​, according to the Manchester Evening News.

"Over the next few years we will work hard to provide our apprentices and team members with the best training and development so that we can equip them with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant," said Pizza Hut MD, Kathryn Austin.
