This program is pending final approval by the Ministry of Advanced Education.

Highly-qualified urban forestry professionals are becoming increasingly necessary in cities around the world due to the rapid pace and scale of urbanization, the need to adapt to multiple impacts of climate change in cities, and increasing demand from the public for the recreational, psychological, and health benefits that trees and greenspaces provide. This 30-credit, 13-month program, is based on a comprehensive, interdisciplinary perspective of urban forestry with strong emphasis on governance and strategic management of urban forests. Students will learn how trees and vegetation grow and are managed in urban settings, but the emphasis of the program will be on skills and knowledge related to leadership and governance; project management and business skills; the public policy and planning context of urban forestry; green infrastructure planning; communication and marketing; public involvement; and urban forest resource and benefit assessment. The program is built around 3 critical management skills that are woven throughout the program: creativity, decision-making, and leadership. It is targeted for professionals with urban forestry related work experience in the public, private or not-for-profit sector, but also recent graduates from the UBC Bachelor of Urban Forestry program or similar programs.

UBC Forestry offers a research (thesis) -based Master's program within a Science (MSc) or an Applied Science (MASc) credential. Thesis Master's students receive training in research techniques, and also make contributions in their own right to the body of knowledge. The type of work undertaken by an MSc or MASc student tends to be focused, looking at a specific problem, and is generally completed within 2-3 years.

We have approximately 85-95 thesis-based master’s students in any given year, which is about 30% of our total Forestry graduate student population. In addition to being part of the Faculty of Forestry, MSc and MASc students are also considered members of one of our three Faculty departments, based on their supervisor’s affiliation.

Admission to the Master of Science (MSc) program requires an academic background in science, applied science, agricultural sciences, social science or forestry. Admission to the Master of Applied Science (MASc) program requires an academic background in applied science or engineering.

What makes the program unique?

The Faculty of Forestry offers excellent courses and cutting edge research across a spectrum of disciplines related to forestry, and opportunities for interdisciplinary learning. Graduate students work with leading scientists in state-of-the-art facilities within the Forest Sciences Centre and at any of two research forests. 

We are one of the largest graduate units on campus, with over 300 students enrolled in our 7 degree programs. We attract students from around the world, with over 40 countries represented in our community. Given the global nature of modern forestry, the experience our students gain by working with colleagues from around the world is a subtle but effective means of creating the global citizens that UBC aspires to produce.

The Master of Forestry (MF) is a course-based degree program offered as part of a dual-degree partnership with other European and Canadian Universities: TRANSFOR-M (Transatlantic Forestry Master). This partnership is a unique course-based educational experience, which provides MF students with the opportunity to explore Forestry both in Europe and Canada.

Admitted students register in the MF program at UBC for a two-year period. Within that timeframe, one year is spent in Europe completing degree requirements at the chosen partner institution, and the second year is completed at UBC-Vancouver completing the MF degree requirements, resulting in conferral of two separate Master’s credentials.

The Master of Sustainable Forest Management (MSFM) is a 9-month, course-based master’s program that prepares students for careers as forestry professionals and sets the stage for life-long learning. The program begins in August and consists of field-work experience as well as course work, with students completing graduation requirements the following April. Students in the MSFM program come from various backgrounds with bachelor degrees in ecology, physical geography, environmental sciences, forestry or allied disciplines. 

The MSFM provides advanced study in natural resource stewardship. Program components include: tree and stand dynamics, forest to landscape: structure and function, forest management, economics and administration of forestry, leadership skills, communication and critical reasoning, information acquisition and analysis, professionalism and ethics.

What makes the program unique?

The MSFM is accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board (CFAB). This enables graduates to apply to become Registered Professional Foresters (RPF) with member agencies of the Canadian Federation of Professional Foresters Associations (CFPFA), including the Association of BC Forest Professionals.

The MSFM program is also accredited by the Society of American Foresters (SAF). MSFM graduates meet the education requirements for the SAF Certified Forester® credential, as well as the education requirements for those US states in which foresters are required to be licensed or registered. Individual states may have additional experience and licensing exam requirements.

Career options

The MSFM curriculum is accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board, and by the Society of American Foresters. With real world experience and hands-on projects, graduates of the MSFM program are well positioned for employment. After graduation, you will know how to design and implement site and landscape level plans that integrate the environmental, social and economic components of sustainability. Graduates are now employed in both the public and private sector, primarily in Western Canada. Read about recent graduates who have gained employment directly after finishing the program; some students received offers before the end of the program.

The Master of International Forestry (MIF) is a full-time, 10 month course-based master’s degree that provides a foundation in forest and natural resource management, conservation and policy. The MIF is designed for early/mid-career professionals who wish to expedite their careers and advance to leadership positions.

You’ll gain valuable skills relevant to a career in rural development, forest conservation planning, sustainable resource management, and conservation policy development, diplomacy and negotiation. The MIF is for individuals who want to engage productively - and to become leaders – in an international forestry context with international agencies and secretariats (e.g. UN FAO, UNEP), finance institutions (e.g. The World Bank, Asian Development Bank), transnational forest products enterprises, government ministries, consulting firms, environmental NGOs, and advocacy groups. The MIF program provides training in skills identified in forestry and environmental job postings, and our curriculum is targeted at major international employers.

What makes the program unique?

The UBC Faculty of Forestry is recognized as a world leader in natural resources research and education. We are turning out a new generation of foresters by keeping pace with changing social values and an increasingly knowledge-based forest sector. Because forest resource management and conservation decision-making increasingly occurs within a context of global agreements, and forest products and services must compete in international markets, we ensure that our programs are progressive and timely. Our Faculty members are globally minded and have worked on the international stage of forest management and conservation. We are committed to international education, and are a founding partner of the International Partnership for Forestry Education.
