    Program Overview

    The Master of Forestry program is geared toward resolving natural resource sustainability challenges and resource conflicts across a complex web of social, political, and ecological systems.

    Accredited by the Society of American Foresters (S.A.F.), the program is built upon multidisciplinary exposure in the sciences, and a progressive growth of experience in resource measurement, analysis, management, and policy. The curriculum is designed in three educational stages, along with an emphasis on professional skill development.

    Stage One: Basic Knowledge is a focus on understanding the biological, physical, and social science that is the foundation for forest ecology, management, and policy. Stage Two: Frameworks and Skills for Integrating Knowledge provides many of the analytical techniques and tools for synthesis and analysis of scientific information within a social and political context. Stage Three: Synthesis and Analysis of Knowledge is designed to address and prepare students for solving important real-world problems and resource conflicts.

    Students gain hands-on research and technical experience alongside faculty at 11,000 acres of Yale-owned forested properties, as well as opportunities in management and policy development through YSE’s centers and programs.
