Have you ever been a fan of someone so much that you’d like to ~professionally~ expand your knowledge on them?

The Beatles fans are lucky in this case as the University of Liverpool is offering a master’s degree in the Fab Four. Aimed at individuals who are “currently working or considering pursuing a career in the music and creative industries,” The Beatles: Music Industry and Heritage MA would look into the “deep, significant, and lasting relationship”—as per Dr. Mike Jones of The Beatles Legacy Group—between the legendary group and the city. 

Program leader Dr. Holly Tessler said that “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 heritage, culture and tourism in the 21st century.” 

“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 continued. 

According to BBC News, a Beatles MA has been previously offered in the same 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,” it read.
