Accelerated Master of Forestry Program

The accelerated Master of Forestry (MF) program is designed for students who want to earn both a bachelor’s degree in forestry and a master’s degree in forestry from Michigan Tech. This program allows students to earn a course work-only master's degree with just a single year of study beyond completion of the bachelor's degree.

Currently, the accelerated program provides enhanced training in advanced technologies, natural resource policy, business economics, engineering technologies, or a comprehensive curriculum.

A graduate degree opens many doors and enhances your professional options. In addition, the accelerated MF program offers students many unique benefits:

  • Receive enhanced training and develop specialized skills.
  • Decrease the time to earn a graduate degree.
  • Save tuition dollars.
  • Qualify to receive scholarships and financial aid, while you have both undergraduate and graduate student status (upon eligibility).
  • Maintain continuity with facilities, faculty, and student colleagues.
  • Gain a competitive edge in job markets and increase your earning potential.

How to get started

During your junior year, talk to the MF coordinator or your academic advisor to ensure you’re on the right track for meeting graduate school prerequisites and degree requirements. Apply early to start taking classes and meeting your degree requirements during your senior year. All admissions standards for the Graduate School apply.
