Topic: Can the University of Stirling be considered an 'Engaged' University?

Supervisors:  Sarah Bromage and Prof Holger Nehring

The University of Stirling’s Art Collection is fully accredited by Museum Galleries Scotland and for my placement dissertation I will be working with the Art Collection to determine how successfully the University can be considered an 'Engaged University'.  To achieve this I will be working with the Art Collection for three exhibitions (Anne Frank: An History for Today/Gallipoli/ Chinese Exhibition) to observe how they engage students, academics and the public in bringing heritage to the campus.     

I became interested in studying Environment, Heritage and Policy MSc after working in the heritage industry for a few years following my undergraduate degree.  Like most graduates I wasn’t sure of which career path to pursue.  First, I got a volunteer job in heritage which I became very passionate about and this lead to a paid job.  Within the job I soon felt that I was lacking important knowledge in the area and since I wanted to make this my career I decided to go back to further education.  For my placement dissertation choice I work with a different organisation to what I am used to and this has given me a breadth of experience and knowledge while providing opportunity to observe and evaluate the working strategies of an organisation all of which will be invaluable in future heritage positions.
