Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture

Graduate Degrees

Main Menu

The M.S. program requires a minimum of 24 semester hours of graduate course work and 6 semester hours of thesis research and writing for a total of 30 semester hours. This program allows students to obtain a specialized advanced degree in any of the subject areas within the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture (ATCOFA), including Forest Management, Forest Economics, Recreation Management, Resource Interpretation, Wildlife Management, Agroforestry, Wood Science, Urban Forestry, Forest Entomology, Hydrology, Forest Ecology, Silviculture, Soil Science and Spatial Science. The M.S. degree program is appropriate for students who have an undergraduate degree in forestry or a related field and also for students with degrees in other areas. Background work may include courses in each of the following areas: Forest Biology, Forest Resources Inventory, Social Forestry, Forest Ecosystem Management and Forest Resources Administration.


Master of Forestry

The M.F. degree is a non-thesis program that requires a minimum of 38 semester credit hours of graduate course work.  A final comprehensive exam (either written, oral or both) is required during the last semester of enrollment.


Advisory Committee and Degree Plan

Immediately after admission and enrollment during the first semester, students must consult their major professor and develop an advisory committee. This committee will consist of no fewer than three members of the graduate faculty; two must be from the ATCOFA. The advisory committee, chaired by the major professor, will then assist the student in the development of a degree plan that includes any required background courses and graduate course work needed for the students field of interest. This degree plan should be filed with the Associate Dean during the first semester. Subsequent duties of the advisory committee are to assist the student in the development of a formal research proposal (applicable only to M.S. students) that should be completed prior to initiating the research activity and to serve as the examining committee. It is the student's responsibility to insure that all paperwork is completed prior to deadlines as stipulated in the university calendar.
