What can I study?
Our undergraduate degrees develop and emphasize your creative thinking and critical analysis skills. With indoor and outdoor lab components, you are able to put theory into practice through interactive learning environments. Gain real world experience through our Co-op programs.
More than just trees, you can study subjects such as globalization & sustainability, engineering, business management, forest genetics, resource socio-economics & policy, conservation biology, biodiversity and much more!
There is a growing demand for urban green-space professionals due to the rapid pace of urbanization; the need to adapt to multiple impacts of climate change; and increasing demand from the public for the recreational, psychological and health benefits that green-space networks provide.
With increased urban populations, global warming, urban heat islands, flooding and pollution, cities may become unlivable or demand massive energy-use for cooling, unless we can establish large scale, healthy urban forest systems.
Cities all over the world will need urban forestry professionals who can deal with these complex, multi-disciplinary challenges, and provide livable, sustainable and greener communities. Learn more
