‘Excellent analysis of your findings in which your personal knowledge of the Georgia context shines through’ – this is one of the comments on my MSc (Master of Science) dissertation that has just been marked at 84%!
This mark, and a Distinction for the whole Masters, is the reflection of my 20-year-long love for Georgia and of the support received from my incredible supervisor, Lucy McCombes . This is also a reflection of the huge respect I’ve got for the incredible people behind the MSc in Responsible Tourism Management, the only responsible tourism management MSc in the world certified TedQual by the UNWTO for the highest quality in tourism education.
I’ve researched the local community perceptions on Protected Areas and #tourism in Tusheti, #Georgia. The short abstract is here.
Some other comments from the markers include: ‘This is a fantastic piece of research that reflects how far your academic thinking has come. What a great way to finish the MSc!’ ‘Very comprehensive, well-structured and insightful recommendations that demonstrate an excellent level of understanding and clear grasp of a responsible tourism approach (…) and have practical and academic value’.
What a great way to finish the MSc! – and if you have friends nice enough to cut out a big 84 out of cardboard for you at the end, it’s even more worth it! 😊 #masterofscience #environment #sustainabletourism #research #protectedareas #scienceandenvironment #sustainability
