Student Stories

Heritage Studies - Sheila Keane

I began my studies at GMIT in 2010. As a mature student returning to education I was naturally apprehensive but it wasn’t long before I discovered what a truly remarkable course of study I had embarked upon. The wonderful diversity of modules coupled with a department of dedicated & enthusiastic lecturers provided a positive & well-rounded learning experience. I completed my BA in Heritage Studies in 2013 & subsequently went on to complete my BA (Honours) Degree in Heritage Studies in 2014. During that time I became involved with GMIT’s Heritage Society & was elected Vice President. I was a Class Rep for four years & my dissertation research is in the process of being published. The BA (Hons) in Heritage Studies is an outstanding degree course & I would heartily recommend it.
