About

The Master of Forestry (MF) is a course-based degree program from University of British Columbia offered as part of a dual-degree partnership with other European and Canadian Universities: TRANSFOR-M (Transatlantic Forestry Master). This partnership is a unique course-based educational experience, which provides MF students with the opportunity to explore Forestry both in Europe and Canada.

Overview

Admitted students register in the Forestry (MF) program at University of British Columbia for a two-year period.  Within that timeframe, one year is spent in Europe completing degree requirements at the chosen partner institution, and the second year is completed at UBC-Vancouver completing the MF degree requirements, resulting in conferral of two separate Master’s credentials.

Features

The overreaching aim of the program is to educate the next generation of globally minded forest and environmental managers and scientists on the cultural differences, diverse historical contexts, and differing economic drivers that exist in Canadian and European natural resource management approaches. 

Taken separately, both degrees would take three years to complete. 

Programme Structure

  • Year One
MF students register at UBC but spend the year in Europe at their chosen TRANSFOR-M partner institution and complete that institution’s Master program degree requirements (dual registration). MF students will be registered in the 6-credit FRST 548 Major Essay course that activates MF registration and fees (concurrent registration).
  • Year Two 
MF students return to UBC and complete a total of 30 credits to qualify for MF degree conferral: either a 3-credit major essay with 27 credits of approved course work, or a 6-credit major essay with 24 credits of approved course work. Approved course work must include FRST 544 (Technical Communications) and FRST 547 (Forestry in BC). MF graduation is expected in the following Spring, but continued registration through to the following August or December is allowed, if further time is approved by the Program Director (continuing tuition is assessed for extra terms).
