General information on Master of Forestry programmes

Wood is said to be one of mankind’s most precious natural and sustainable resources. Therefore, it is mandatory to analyse and manage these resources wisely in order to protect them. The Masters programme in Forestry equips graduates with the analytical skills to determine the correlations between forests and other domains, such as natural sciences, technical production, economy and social policy.

Ecology, Social Economy, Production Technologies, and Wood Applications are the four pillars that support most of the Masters in Forestry programmes. Furthermore, there are multiple fields of specialisation and research opportunities worth being considered. Tropical and International Forestry, Wood Economy, Forest Protection, and Woods in the Mountains are possible electives, to name just a few.
