Programme Length:

MSc 12 months full-time PgDip 9 months full-time PgCert 4 months full-time

Aims

The aims of the programme are to provide expertise relevant to multiple-use forestry. A broad range of modules are available that cover forest ecology and silviculture, forest planning and management, forest conservation, forest pathology, urban forestry and environmental governance. Programme modules can be selected to serve the interests of professional foresters wanting to upgrade their knowledge in the fields of forest management planning, tropical forestry and environmental issues, or the interests of graduates wishing to obtain a broad introduction to forestry. Our graduates find employment both in Britain and further afield, some within industry, others in government agencies, conservation, development, or research. The MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Forestry share common teaching for nine months after which the Masters degree students spend a further three months preparing a thesis or dissertation. Teaching uses a range of media: lectures, seminars and discussions, case studies, practical and field exercises. Each student must participate in a minimum of four modules in each semester, the choice being made following discussion with the programme organiser. Considerable use is made of computers. Students go on a study tour in the Easter vacation; in recent years the study tour has been to forests near Freiberg, Germany. Research towards the thesis may be field or laboratory based. These field studies may be within Scottish forests or overseas.... [-]
