Possible Areas of Focus

To apply to a graduate program in the College of Forestry and Conservation, first find an area of focus you're interested in pursuing and faculty members who have graduate study opportunities in that area.  Contact the CFC faculty members who have similar interests to you by selecting any name in that area.  You will then be directed to that faculty member’s personal page containing all of their contact information.

We do not have a set quota for the number of graduate students we accept each year.  All admission decisions are made by our faculty once applications and all supplemental materials have been submitted and reviewed – you do not need to secure a commitment from a faculty member before applying, but a faculty member will have to be willing to accept you to be admitted into the program.
