Clemson offers a Master of Forest Resources as well as MS and PhD degrees in Forest Resources. The Master of Forest Resources is a professional degree designed to enhance the non-forestry undergraduates' understanding of natural resource management. Both the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy are research-oriented degrees designed to help students understand and manipulate complex forest ecosystems and the products derived from them.
Clemson's graduate forestry programs welcome students from all undergraduate disciplines, because the profession of forestry requires talents from diverse backgrounds. A core of basic forestry courses is required for students with non-forestry backgrounds. Graduate students have great flexibility in choosing course work and research topics to fit their individual interests.
