Surely I have no opinion. I haven't a clue, but I want to post this article. It may or may not answer some questions.

a-hard-days-night-george-2It sounds nice. I kinda want to get a master's degree in Beatles, but my parents are scientists and they would surely disapprove. Oh well, I still have five years to make up my mind.

I wonder if they offer online classes?

I seriously don't think so. The only jobs you could get are possibly as a professor teaching modern music history or as one of those talking heads on a VH1 Best Songs Ever countdown.

It's far too specialised to do much with, and you'd probably need your undergraduate degree to be in something closely related (something to do with music or popular culture etc.) It would be so interesting though!

 

(And of course this didn't stop me from considering it aha. "Yeah don't worry, Mum, being an English Lit/Beatles graduate is really going to come in handy!")

I'd never do it, honestly. Star's point is my issue; add the fact that I'm already got way too many career choices and it all adds up to, "None for me thanks, I'm driving."

I believe it's one of those degrees you get when you have some time and money to do whatever you want, like after you retire from a job that required a more "useful" degree.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Very true, this added to the novelty of it being just so unusual, I think.

The answer is YES - if you want to be a waiter.

I think you could call them a Beatologist. That's what I go by when I'm impressing/scaring my parents with my knowledge of them.

What do you say when a Beatlesologist knocks on your door?

OK, robert. I think we get it.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
