Data to model wildland fire emissions. Uncovering hidden waste footprints at old mining sites. Surveying, identifying, harvesting, and conserving forests in managed and natural landscapes. The School offers two field-based professional programs that build on our expertise, resources, and reputation—the Master of Forestry and Master of Geographic Information Science. Both programs allow students of any major to transform a bachelor's degrees in any field into a career in the city, the wilderness, or anywhere in between through a 30-credit course-work-only program.
"Students who pursue these professional, field-based degrees are ready to go into the workforce."
No need for a forestry background. Take your bachelor's degree into the field to get you where you want to be: outdoors, doing work that sustains both a fulfilling career and the environment.
