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.
