UC Berkeley Will Offer A Course On Frank Ocean Called “Brain Like Berkeley” For Fall 2018

Do you love Frank Ocean?  Want to take a college course on the star?  If you’re a student at UC Berkeley, you will have your chance!  Preya Gill and Deborah Chang found out that their university offered student-taught courses and couldn’t resist proposing a course on the artistry that had molded their friendship.  


According to The Fader, the course called “Brains Like Berkeley” will be an “artistic history, upbringing, background, musical influences, artist identity, and the way he challenges dominant social concepts such as toxic-masculinity and gender politics.”



The course will be taught by Gill and Chang. They explained to The Fader that they “want to encourage a deep literary exploration of his artistry both in lyrics and through his visuals and live performances.”

“We hope to provide a safe environment where students can discuss his poetry and music with sensitivity, creative respect, and open-mindedness.”



The two students are excited to be able to present this course as a part of Fall 2018’s course options. Frank Ocean’s brother has even responded to the girls’ initiative by tweeting “ENROLL ME.”
