World’s only Masters in The Beatles, Music Industry and Heritage launched
The only qualification of its type in the world, the MA in The Beatles: Music Industry and Heritage will appeal to those currently working – or considering pursuing a career in - the music and creative industries; as well as those employed in museums and galleries, the arts, and across the tourism and leisure sectors.
MA Programme Leader, and The Beatles expert, Dr Holly Tessler said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we are able to bring formal study of The Beatles to the University of Liverpool’s Department of Music and Institute of Popular Music – the world’s first specialist centre for the study of popular music.
“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.”
