The Doctor of Philosophy and the Master of Science degree programs are oriented toward research, education, and scientific technology in the professions of forest products and forestry. The Master of Forest Resources (M.F.R.) is a professional degree designed for students who want to specialize in fields of wood products marketing or industries, forest management, silviculture, urban forestry, watershed management, or wildlife and fisheries management. This degree differs from the research-oriented Master of Science degree programs in the School of Forest Resources because the M.F.R. emphasizes applications, analysis, and synthesis of knowledge rather than creating new information through more traditional types of research.
