Join us at the Faculty of Forestry to learn more about how the MFC can help you develop a challenging and rewarding career as a conservation professional.
Graduates from the Faculty of Forestry's Master of Forest Conservation (MFC) are making a difference! To date, more than 170 individuals from various academic backgrounds have completed their MFC programme and are now working in a broad spectrum of careers in all levels of government, the ENGO sector, industry, consulting, and in their own businesses. For the most part, these highly talented individuals are working in conservation including management, planning, policy development, advocacy, education, and so on.
Even those whose career paths have diverged somewhat from conservation have reported that the knowledge and skills that they developed through their MFC programme have been invaluable. If you have a four year undergraduate degree with a mid-B in your final two years and you want to contribute to the conservation of the world's forests, the Master of Forest Conservation may be for you.
The MFC is an intensive 16-month professional program with a focus on environmental, social and economic aspects of forest conservation. The MFC consists of a rigorous program of lectures, Canadian and foreign field courses, a practical internship as well as individual and group research.
Sufficient flexibility exists for students to design a focussed approach to the program to meet their specific expectations for a career in forest conservation with areas of interest such as conservation biology, fire ecology, human dimension of conservation, urban forest conservation, forest health and protection, tropical forest conservation, biomaterial and bio-energy, and environmental conservation.
In addition to incorporating their area of interest into the core program, students can select their three electives, a host organization for their internship, and a topic for a final research paper, to develop specific skills in their area. Full-time and Part-time options are available.
