The Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources (FER) is an internationally-recognized leader in graduate education. Currently, over 200 students (70% masters and 30% doctoral) are pursuing graduate degrees in forestry and natural resources, including individuals from Afghanistan, Argentina, Honduras, Spain, Thailand, Sweden, Finland, India, the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, South Korea and, of course, all across the United States. Fields of study include forestry; fisheries, wildlife, and conservation biology; natural resources; environmental assessment; and geographic information systems technology.

FER’s graduate students receive a great deal of faculty, financial and technological support. In return, they play an integral role in FER's success by:

  • Working alongside of our world-renowned faculty on groundbreaking research projects;
  • Helping manage and implement our many extension programs;
  • Teaching undergraduates; and
  • Pursuing their own original research projects.

Their efforts help make FER an international center for advanced study in forestry and all of the environmental sciences.

Our Goal

Students at work in the Hofmann Forest.

Our graduate programs emphasize hands-on research, teaching and real world field opportunities. Our overriding goal is to create professionals capable of contributing to society’s welfare through the wise use of our planet’s forests, fisheries, wildlife and other natural resources.

We do this by producing graduate students who advocate sustainable practices in their fields and who have the knowledge, skills and willingness required to succeed as responsible scientists, teachers and practitioners.
