    Master of Forest Ecosystem Science


Forested landscapes play a critical role in sustaining human and other biological communities. They provide wildlife habitat, biodiversity, timber, clean water and other ecosystem services - and play a central role in mitigating rapid climate change.
The Master of Forest Ecosystem Science offers the knowledge, skills and analytical capabilities to shape the development of forest and natural resource management enterprises world-wide. Students will learn about climate change science, water resource management and biodiversity conservation and develop the ability to conduct crucial experimental work in the field.

Students will benefit from connections and experiences with forest, land and fire agencies and non-governement organisations (NGOs), and share the broad range of local and international working experiences and contacts of our academics and students. The Master of Forest Ecosystem Science will prepare students for management positions within the forest and natural resource management sectors.
