About

The two-year MSc program in European Forestry is interesting in both its forms and content. It consists of lectures, field and laboratory exercises, discussion seminars, projects and excursions. The whole program is taught in English. It focuses not only on traditional forestry, but also on a number of topics related to ecology, nature conservation, and sustainable development, with particular emphasis on the latest progressive trends.

The aim of the program is to provide students with a general overview of forestry and nature conservation and develop them theoretical and practical management skills. Knowledge gained in the program: intensive language training and understanding of contemporary international issues allowing graduates to take up top management positions in the forest based sector (and related fields) both in EU and non-EU countries.
