University Offers Beatles Masters Course

Thinking of going back to school? Why not get your degree in Beatles-ology? Liverpool Hope University has just launched a course that brings the Beatles and their music to higher education. Titled The Beatles, Popular Music and Society, the program can be full-time or part-time.

"There have been over 8,000 books about The Beatles but there has never been serious academic study and that is what we are going to address," said Mike Brocken, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music at the university.

It will cover issues relating to The Beatles and pop music and will take the form of four 12-week classes and a dissertation.

The course will start in September, and the university will consider prospective students with a good undergraduate degree. But any music industry experience is always a plus.
