Mop-Top Masters Program

Liverpool Hope University has announced a new Master of Arts degree program, “The Beatles, Popular Music and Society.”

“There have been over 8000 books about The Beatles but there has never been serious academic study and that is what we are going to address,” says Dr. Michael (Mike)  Brocken, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music at the school.  Dr. Brocken is a frequent contributor to BBC Radio Merseyside and has written about the British folk music revival and Burt Bacharach. Liverpool Hope University (formerly the Liverpool Institute of Higher Education) is the successor to earlier Catholic and Church of England colleges dating back to 1844. 

Liverpudlian teen musicians John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison formed the group that became the Beatles in 1957-58 and appeared at the hometown Cavern club nearly 300 times from 1961 to 1963. Homeboy Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) became the Beatles’ drummer in 1962.
