Master of Forest Science (MFS)

The Master of Forest Science degree program is designed for students wishing to conduct scientific research that contributes toward basic and applied knowledge in forest-related topics. The degree is intended to provide students a deeper disciplinary focus than the Management degrees (such as the MF), while holding to the core value of the school that students should be allowed flexibility in course selection in order to meet their educational goals. The course of study includes formalized training in the philosophy and practice of science. Training is provided through key courses in combination with extended research. The scientific research required for this degree will be conducted in close collaboration with an environment school faculty advisor. It is therefore expected that each student will identify and work with such an advisor no later than the end of their first semester.
