(Scroll down for video) Parents in California, are angry after they learned that a professor required female students to perform in the nude before passing their final exam.
However, officials from UC San Diego, defended the art teacher who told his students to do their final exam in the nude.
The mother of one student said that professor Ricardo Dominguez forced her daughter to undress or the risk failing the class
The mother also said that a general requirement for students to be naked to pass the class made her sick to her stomach.
Officials denied that nudity is a requirement to pass the class, saying that students can perform the nude gestures without removing their clothes.
Some students also defended the practice, saying that everyone was nude and there was nothing sexual about the performance.
Dominguez said that the students are offered the option of being figurative or emotionally naked.
Students are aware of the requirement from the first day of school and he has never received a complaint before, the professor said.
The students undress in a dark room filled with burning candles, and students who are uncomfortable with the revealing nature of the course, should not enroll in the class, the professor said.
