Students are to be given the chance to study a Master of Arts degree in The Beatles at a university in Liverpool.
The first-ever qualification of its kind has been announced on the website of the city’s Hope University.
“The Beatles, Popular Music & Society” consists of four 12-week taught modules and a dissertation, confirmed Mike Brocken.
The institution’s senior lecturer in popular music said it was about time such serious academy was introduced on The Fab Four.
“Forty years on from their break-up, now is the right time and Liverpool is the right place to study The Beatles“, he explained.
“This MA is expected to attract a great deal of attention, not just locally but nationally and we have already had enquiries from abroad, particularly the United States.”
Excuse me, sir, I’d like to register, please! 😀
