Woman Gets First Masters Degree in The Beatles

(cc) United Press International

Wow I’m actually not sure what to make of this!

Apparently a woman has become the first person to graduate with a masters degree in The Beatles. Really!

On one hand it’s easy to make fun of this as frivolous, a waste of funding, etc…

But on the other hand, I think it’s a good thing that she is perusing her dreams like this.  Who are we to judge?  Now if there was public tax money used in this degree then perhaps we are to judge after all.

What do you folks think?  Good thing or not?

  • UK university awards first Beatles degree – Yahoo! NewsBeatles Degree. Nuff said.

    • Former Miss Canada finalist, Mary-Lu Zahalan-Kennedy was one of the first 12 students to sign up for the Liverpool Hope University course on the Fab Four when it began in 2009 and was the first to graduate, the university said on Wednesday.
    • The course looks at the studio sound and composition of the Beatles and how Liverpool helped to shape their music. The MA examines the significance of their music and how it helped to define identities, culture and society.
    • Mike Brocken, founder and leader of the Beatles MA at Liverpool Hope University, said the postgraduate degree makes Zahalan-Kennedy a member of a select group of popular music experts.

      “Mary-Lu now joins an internationally recognized group of scholars of Popular Music Studies who are able to offer fresh and thought-provoking insights into the discipline of musicology.”

  2. Maybe a little odd but I like that she was able to specify so much and truly have a customized degree. I think good trend.

    • Yeah it’s a good thing but it depends on how much it cost. I think people will one day get their own degree and certifications on the fly. That would have to be much cheaper than currently possible.

      Thanks for stopping by, I’ve missed seeing you! 🙂
