The Master of Science in Tropical Forestry (academic period 2023-25) will start in October 2023. The course is taught in English at the Technische Universität Dresden, one of the 11 German Universities of Excellence.
Since its inception in 1995, this unique 2-year master’s degree program has garnered international recognition through its focus on social, ecological and economic aspects of tropical forest management. This is an excellent opportunity to study in an international, intercultural, and dynamic working environment offered at the reputed ‘Chair of Tropical and International Forestry‘ that offers integrated specialization in tropical ecology, forest and development policy and resource management.
In this programme, students will learn from and work alongside a competent academic and research team, who will supervise their field research in international tropical or sub-tropical contexts.
Drawing on a century-long expertise in forest sciences, the programme puts emphasis on the ecological, technical as well as social science dimensions in forestry. Special attention is given to the socio-economic as well as socio-political aspects during the education. At the end of the study program, interested graduates with outstanding merit will have a chance to enter our PhD program and join our team of researchers. Students will also benefit from our competent alumni network of over 400 forestry professionals employed by some of the major national, international, intergovernmental, and private organizations around the world.
