Course description:

The orientation of Forestry has changed from being solely state-directed to an increasing involvement of a large number of stakeholders. This is furthered through the on-going processes of globalisation and devolution. The MSc Programme in Tropical Foresty qualifies graduates to deal with the huge challenges in contemporary tropical forestry as well to adapt to future developments.

These tasks call for extended skills in the management of natural forests, forest plantations, and urban tree resources in tropical and subtropical regions and integrated land use management. Expertise in such areas is needed in national and international institutions, consulting agencies, universities and research institutes. The MSc graduates especially work as change agents to develop forest management and rural regions towards sustainability in terms of economy, social and ecological aspects.
