The elective track “International Forestry” is part of the M.Sc. in “Forest Science” and focuses on the international dimensions of forestry. It offers competencies for graduates aiming to work in a range of fields to tackle the complex issues associated with the sustainable management of forests and natural resources.
It provides students with a background in global processes, developments and policies that are relevant to forestry, delivers an understanding of major forest ecosystems, forest management paradigms of international importance, and offers key competencies for the analysis and management of forestry systems.
Typically, our students come from all over the world to Freiburg, one of the most popular and beautiful cities in Germany. They bring a high diversity of cultural backgrounds, professional and academic experiences to the program.
The International Forestry program is best suited to graduates of B.Sc. programmes in Forest Sciences and closely related fields who wish to work in an international context and also for international students from abroad who seek to expand their competencies and horizons for work in their home countries.
Application is possible until 15th of May 2018.
