Are you fascinated by Cristiano Ronaldo but not sure what subject you would like to study at the university level?

Well, get yourself on a plane to Canada. 

The Daily Mail is reporting that the University of British Columbia Okanagan is offering a sociology degree that centres around the cultural phenomenon that is CR7.

Professor Luis Aguiar says of the course: 

Ronaldo is the centre and every discussion, class meeting revolves around Ronaldo initially. And then we explore, we broaden out to larger themes. 

So it starts with Ronaldo but Ronaldo is almost like a springboard to talk about larger issues that are much more sociologically significant than just a biography of Ronaldo.

I don't know if Ronaldo knows about the course. I haven't heard from Ronaldo, I haven't heard from his entourage. I would love to hear from either one, and I would love to have Ronaldo maybe Skyping into the class.

Still, we can certainly think of some Canadians who could do with brushing up on their Ronaldo knowledge.
