It Finally Has Happened

A British university is offering a master's degree in Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter, but it will cost students more than $6,200.

For $6,275 Birmingham City University in the U.K. will teach students how to blog, set up podcasts, and make the most of the social media Web sites for marketing.

“It’s not for freaks or IT geeks. The tools learned on this course will be accessible to many people,” convenor Jon Hickman told The Daily Mail.

“It will definitely appeal to students looking to go into professions including journalism and PR.”
But student Jamie Waterman, said it would be a waste of the university’s resources.

“It’s of no interest to me whatsoever. Virtually all of the content of this course is so basic it can be self-taught,” he said.
Can someone loan me $6,200? I really need to expand my horizons, go back to school, and get another degree, especially a degree that won't be worth the paper it is printed on!
A degree in Facebook and Twitter? Only the Brits...
