The Forest Science and Master of Environmental Science programs at Yale University are designed for students wishing to conduct scientific research that contributes toward basic and applied knowledge.


The Forest Science and Master of Environmental Science degree at Yale University is intended for those students wishing to work on forest-related topics. 

Learning outcomes

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 member; therefore, students must have a commitment from a faculty research advisor upon admission to these degree programs.

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • MESc/MFS students are required to complete Mixed Methods for Social Science Research or Natural Science Research Methodsn their first semester. 
  • Another research methods course may be substituted when appropriate and subject to approval of the research advisor.
  • Students should work with their advisors to select their remaining courses that will support the design, execution, and communication of their Master’s research and that are consistent with their career goals. 
  • These courses may be drawn from YSE, as well as from other departments or schools within Yale.
