Want To Score An MA In Beatles Songs?

Then try applying to the Liverpool Hope University. They are the first in the UK, and probably the world, to offer such an academic program. Talk about geeky: the formal title of the course is a Masters Degree in The Beatles, Popular Music, and Society.

So what will you be in for if you decide to pursue higher studies? The course is divided into four modules of 12 weeks each. It will cover various topics such as the postwar music industry, subcultures, as well as the significance of authenticity and locality. I suppose The Beatles are all very much part of these topics, and they will certainly be placed under a very powerful microscope, so to speak. Oh, and you have to finish a dissertation at the end of the course.

After getting your MA in The Beatles, how will this benefit you? Uh, duh, you?ll be an expert on The Beatles! Perhaps you can start a blog, or maybe you can even write your own book! And imagine what your status would be among fellow music geeks? Seriously, though, according to Mike Brocken, a senior lecturer in popular music at Liverpool Hope, a Masters degree ?equips people with extra study and research skills. MAs of any description are vital for the workplace. You will find that once you have done a master’s degree it separates you from the pack.?

If you have about 3,445 GBP to spare (this is the general cost of MAs) and some more extra here and there for other expense, and you are a certified music and pop culture geek, you might want to sign up for this course.
