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 80 thesis-based master’s students in any given year, which is about one-third 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.
