Masters in Forestry

The coursework that is involved in earning a Masters in Forestry has significantly changed with the advances in technology that are now available. Students can expect to study courses including geographic information systems, 3D modeling, environmental conservation and remote sensing. Soil science and pest management also are important factors to understand. Understanding how forestry systems work and how to manage the world's resources are also vital topics, and lead to a diversity of coursework that combines indoor and outdoor field experience that many students find challenging and rewarding. This can then be combined also with the more technological aspects of training that lead for a diverse and exciting career path, beyond forestry alone.

Because a great deal of the coursework involved is so technologically oriented, it makes sense for many students to explore the possibility of obtaining an online degree. Many traditional universities offer online programs, and there are forestry schools that are specifically located online that will help hone students' technology skills and understanding of forest conservation. These have the same reputation and potential for career advancement that traditional universities offer, but students are able to complete their degree on their own time, while still working or from the comfort of their own home. 

There is no shortage of job opportunities for those who pursue Forestry Master's Programs, as taking care of natural resource levels is something that is at the forefront of many industries. Graduates may find work in a variety of different sectors, including the timber industry but also branching out into environmental conservation industries, public recreation and hospitality, and social services. With abundant jobs, there is also ample opportunity for advancement. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average starting salary for Forestry technicians in 2008 was $35,010, but this number rises with experience.
