LONDON - Canadian singer Mary-Lu Zahalan-Kennedy has become the first person in the world to graduate with a Masters degree in The Beatles.
The former Miss Canada finalist, 53, was one of the first students to sign up for the course on the Fab Four when it launched at Liverpool Hope University in March 2009.
Twelve full-time students joined the Master of Arts course in ‘The Beatles, Popular Music and Society’ and Zahalan-Kennedy is the first of her class to graduate.
“I am so proud of my achievement. The course was challenging, enjoyable and it provided a great insight into the impact The Beatles had and still have to this day across all aspects of life,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
Liverpool Hope University officials believe the MA offers the first advanced degree based on the life and times of the Fab Four.
The ground-breaking course looks at the studio sound and composition of The Beatles and how Liverpool helped to shape their music. (ANI)
