University Offering A Master's Degree In The Beatles

It's not unusual for a university to offer a class or two about The Beatles - but now one school is offering an entire Master's program dedicated to the Fab Four.

The University of Liverpool - the band's hometown - is offering an MA program titled 'The Beatles: Music Industry and Heritage.

Dr. Holly Tessler, who heads up the program, says it covers not just the Beatles but "the wider study of Liverpool's - and Britain's - heritage, tourism and culture sectors" Classes are set to begin this September.

I'm not sure what one does with an MA in The Beatles, but I've already got a BA in mass communications that isn't at all practical, so ... I wonder if they do distance learning?
