Kanye West Course Will Be Offered At Canadian University For Fall Semester
Returning and incoming college students attending Concordia University in Montreal, Canada now have the chance to experience the first all Kanye West course, an entire course dedicated to him. The 44 year-old creative mogul, also known as Ye, continues to break barriers and set trends, this time on a university level.
Montreal’s Concordia University will offer the university level course for the fall 2022 curriculum. The 13-week course will be opened to Fine Arts students as a free elective. Professor Yassin Alsalman, also known by stage name as Narcy, will be instructing the course titled Kanye vs. Ye: Genius by Design.
Professor and artist Yassin Alsalman took to Instagram and shared in a post,
“I want to bring something new and fresh to students,” Alsalman explained. “An opportunity to bring more amazing guests to the University and to discuss the world through the lens of one of the most influential artists of our generation.”
The course isn’t solely about Kanye West, but instead encouraging conversation surrounding Ye’s career in design, media and music over the years.
Alsalman continued in the post,
“This class isn’t only about Kanye. It’s about community, creativity, responsibility, accountability, fame and mental health, dreams and nightmares — and more importantly, self-actualization. Welcome To Graduation. Sign up now.”
As a lecturer since 2013, this isn’t the first time Alsalman has taught a curriculum based on a musician. Alsalman has previously instructed on the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Black Star and Lauryn Hill since beginning his teaching back in 2013. Narcy, the Iraqi-Canadian rapper, is expected to release his first single “IRAQAFELLA” tomorrow (March 18).
