Interested in a career in forest or general environmental management, policy and/or research? Our MSc in Environmental and Forest Management is a professionally recognised qualification for careers in the forest and/or environmental sector.
On this MSc programme you will study the principles of forest and woodland management as well as general environment management and their application both in the UK and overseas. The programme is aimed at individuals interested in a career in environmental management, environmental services, timber production, community forestry or a combination of these.
You will spend the first part of the programme covering all the core competencies of forestry (as defined by the Institute of Chartered Foresters) and environmental management, as well as other topics. Teaching is often in small classes to maximise participation. Several courses include visits to local forests and other interesting locations around Scotland and you will also take a residential field courses which take place during the Easter vacation.
A UK 2:1 honours degree (or international equivalent), in a biological, environmental or physical science, geography, or other relevant subject; applicants with a 2ii (or equivalent), particularly with some relevant experience, may also be considered. We also consider individuals with degrees in a wider range of disciplines who are clearly motivated by the programme and have some relevant experience.
