School of the Environment
The Master of Environmental Science (MESc) and Master of Forest Science (MFS) programs are designed for students wishing to conduct scientific research that contributes toward basic and applied knowledge. The MFS degree is intended for those students wishing to work on forest-related topics, and the MESc degree is intended for students wishing to work on non-forest related environmental issues. These science degrees are intended to provide students a deeper disciplinary focus than the School’s management degrees, while holding to the core value of the School that students should be allowed flexibility in course selection in order to meet their educational goals. The course of study includes formalized training in the philosophy and practice of science. Training is provided through key courses in combination with extended research.
The scientific research required for this degree will be conducted in close collaboration with a F&ES faculty research advisor. Selection of the advisor will take place during the application process, where students indicate three potential advisors they would be interested in working with. It is suggested that applicants connect with potential advisors before applying, however this is not required and advisors are not secured in advance of application for admission.
