Mumbai University received approval from the expert committee to launch a three-month course in Hip-Hop. The University of Mumbai is set to introduce an academic course - “Introduction to Hip Hop Studies”, and the course will start its academic activities in June 2019. The course fee for this three months course will be around 5,000 INR.
This course is a brainchild of Sanjay Ranade who is the Head of the Department of Communication and Journalism. Yatindra Ingle, Assistant Professor at Mumbai University who is also a rapper himself will be the Coordinator of the course. Mr.Ingle is also known for emceeing rap battles in and around the city.
The Hip-Hop genre or lifestyle which includes art, dance, music, literature, style, identity and politics regained its limelight due to the release of “Gully Boy”, earlier in the month of February.
The course will introduce the students to the basics of art, politics, the defiance of racial and geographical boundaries through the glasses of Hip-Hop culture. It will also discuss women in Hip-Hop. The course will definitely give a political overview of the Hip-Hop movement to the students, which is a must if someone has to know about a form of art.
