What will I learn?

Forestry encompasses the management of natural forests and woodlands, plantations and agroforestry through the practical application of scientific, economic and social principles. Sustainable management of forest resources requires both short-term management of variability and the ability to plan for the long-term sustainability of forest ecosystems. The Master of Forestry offers a flexible program of advanced learning to develop your knowledge and skills in forestry and the forest sciences and their relationship to other land management disciplines. The broad scope of the program reflects the diversity of perspectives needed for effective forest resource management, and the choice of courses within forestry sub-disciplines develops your knowledge in either the science and methods or policy and management aspects of forestry.
