    A fan of Real Madrid and still undecided about your major at university? Have no fear and take a sociology degree that focuses on Cristiano Ronaldo.

    The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada is now offering a sociology degree that focuses on Cristiano Ronaldo and the cultural phenomenon around him, Bleacher Report says.

    “Ronaldo is the center of every discussion, class meeting revolves around Ronaldo initially. And then we explore, we broaden out to larger themes.” – said Professor Luis Aguiar.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best football player on the planet. The 30-year old Portuguese superstar has already scored 44 goals in total since the start of 2014/2015 season.

    On January 13, Ronaldo received his third Ballon d'Or — the most valuable personal award in football. In the contest, the Real Madrid genius surpassed FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. 

    Professor Luis Aguilar was glad his students were well informed about Cristiano Ronaldo's recent achievement.

    The UBC is one of the oldest universities in Canada and enrolls over 58,000 students at its campuses in Vancouver and Okanagan Valley. The UBC is ranked 30th in the world (second in Canada), according to US News & World Report’s 2015 university rankings. The UBC has rich academic history: its alumni received seven Nobel Prizes and 67 Rhodes Scholarships.
