Incorporating the Nonforester into Forestry Master's Programs: A Survey
A survey of 37 U.S. forestry schools indicates that 35 accept people without previous forestry education into their master's programs. Most schools report that demand for their master's programs by nonforesters is increasing. Most incorporate these students into the same programs as those with forestry degrees and allow them to choose among the degree options available. The background work required of nonforesters is variable and often dependent on the particular program chosen. Only one school reports a special master's program exclusively for nonforesters, and schools typically do not offer special or accelerated background courses for these individuals.
