Has anyone seen this?

This is pretty much my dream major.  I would probably get a 4.0 since I would actually want to do my work.  It seems so much more interesting than Biology, which I currently want to major in.  Too bad I don't have the money to move across an ocean for a Master's degree that you can't do much with.

I'm sorry, a *master's degree*? I think this is taking "study what you love" the wrong way.

Hell, I got a Journalism degree because I didn't want to go the English major route, and uh...yeah. Not using either; don't know how much better off I am with a more "practical degree."

Yeah, it seems kind of fun though.  Meh, maybe if I get rich I'll add it to my list of things to do.

Fun? Oh, definitely. I'd probably be right up there in the front row waving my hand all around to get the professor's attention. I'd be one of *those* students.

However, at the same time, I don't want to scientifically know why I like their music. I think some things shouldn't be boiled down into equations and all that.

And I'm too broke for that degree anyways.

Holy mother of PEARL. This information could change my life plan for the next year.

Pros:
-Having a Masters in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society would certainly make my résumé stand out amongst the crowd, especially considering it has nothing to do with what I got my Bachelors in (Art).
-I would finally get to visit Liverpool, my Mecca.
-I would most likely meet my future husband in the program or in that city, since I would fall head over heels for any semi-handsome guy with a Liverpool accent and mild interest in the band. *Swoon*
-I could use one of my weekends to go to London and cross Abbey Road again but actually get my picture taken this time. (Seriously, where was my mind? Oh, probably on the fact that I was walking exactly where The Beatles had walked.)

Cons:
-I am planning to move to NYC this fall … Which one do I choose?!?!?!
-Pretty sure it would cost like $20,000 all in all. Hmm, all that just to be certified in my Beatle love? Although, getting to date guys with Beatle accents would definitely be worth it. DECISIONS!!

Just saw on the news: "First ever Beatles degree awarded in England." So someone actually did it!

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

It would probably cost more than $20,000, to be honest. Accomodation, living costs and tuition fees would top that, without even considering flying across the ocean to see your family. Actually, I just checked and it's only a one year course... $20,000 will be fine.

Well, if worked for Colin Frissell, it can work for just about anybody. :)

Okay, so I'm sixteen and English and starting to look into my university options... I think this timing is fate.

There was an article in my local paper, and my Mom said 2 seconds into the article said " Oh My God, You have to read this"

Heck yes, I would totally marry a man who talked like that! It is HOTT, mostly because it’s the same accent as the boys. Maybe I only like it because I am American? :) I dunno. Btw, the verdict is in: I won’t be joining the program. But it was a fun dream while it lasted.
