But what is the degree worth on the market?

Hope University in Liverpool (England) has introduced a new masters program in The Beatles. From the university's website:

Mike Brocken, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music at Hope, said 'There have been over 8,000 books about The Beatles but there has never been serious academic study and that is what we are going to address.

'Forty years on from their break-up, now is the right time and Liverpool is the right place to study The Beatles. This MA is expected to attract a great deal of attention, not just locally but nationally and we have already had enquiries from abroad, particularly the United States.

On the surface it would seem that the remuneration for such a degree would be indirect at best and likely to be rather low. Perhaps this is the type of "self edification" degree symptomatic of a narcissistic society?
