Yes, you heard it right, the fans of The Beatles are now being invited to study for a master’s degree in The Fab Four at the University of Liverpool.
In the course, students will get to learn about the group’s influence on music and culture. Students will also be able to visit sites in Merseyside which featured in the group’s early years.
The course will start in September and will focus on “currently working, or considering pursuing a career in, the music and creative industries”, said a university spokesman.
Dr. Tessler is a Beatles expert, who shared a few details about this course. She said that she was absolutely delighted to bring the formal study of the Beatles to the University of Liverpool’s Department of Music and Institute of Popular Music.
“What makes this MA unique is its focus on The Beatles in a future-facing way, considering the legacy’s influence on the music and creative industries, in popular culture, and within the heritage, culture, and tourism in the 21st Century,” she said.
“This MA is as much about the wider study of Liverpool’s – and Britain’s – heritage, tourism and culture sectors as it is about the role The Beatles played in them,” she added further.
It’s not the first time a Beatles MA has been offered in the city, a woman from Canada became the first person in the world to graduate with a master’s degree in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society at Liverpool Hope University in 2011.
