‘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 very likely 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 .
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
