Covering close to a third of the world’s surface, forests provide ecosystem services that are critical to human society and to environmental sustainability.
Forestry encompasses the critically important management of natural forests and woodlands, plantations and agroforestry, through the practical application of scientific, economic and social principles.
The Master of Forestry at ANU reflects the diversity of perspectives needed for effective forest resource management. You will take courses that develop your knowledge in either the science and methods or policy and management aspects of forestry and sustainable forest management.
The Advanced program incorporates up to a year of research with mentoring by a Supervisor and the production of a thesis.
Graduates of the Master of Forestry go on to careers in forestry and natural resource science, management and policy.
Our graduates are employed as forest researchers, managers, rangers, technicians and policy specialists, and are also employed in a range of consulting roles in the government and private sectors.
Completing a Master of Forestry (Advanced), with a substantial research component, can also qualify you to apply for entry to a PhD program.
At a minimum, all applicants must meet program-specific academic/non-academic requirements, and English language requirements. Admission to most ANU programs is on a competitive basis. Therefore, meeting all admission requirements does not automatically guarantee entry.
Applicants must present a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a minimum GPA of 5.5/7.0.
