Alongside professors who are some of the world's best in their disciplines, you will embark on a major research study exploring a specific aspect of forestry or environmental management. You will be able to tailor your research to whatever you are passionate about, such as forest fire management policy, the effects of mercury on Bay of Fundy seagulls or the economic impact of forest management strategies on Crown Land.

Branch out and explore UNB’s Forestry and Environmental Management graduate programs. We’ve been teaching the science of forestry for over 100 years, helping countless students manage and protect the planet’s natural resources for generations to come. Ranked among the best in North America, our department’s collaborative learning environment gives students the ability to examine environmental problems from both a biophysical and a socioeconomic perspective. Graduates are well-equipped to succeed in a variety of roles in the forestry industry, growing into respected environmental leaders, natural resource managers, conservationists, project coordinators and researchers. We normally have around 80 graduate students who are working on a variety of projects. Our recent graduates have gone on to work in conservation biology, First Nations consultation, CURA project coordination, geospatial analysis, research and more.
