OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Professional School Undergraduate Forestry & Forest Engineering Degrees

New! Beginning in 2013!

The Forestry degree is now administered as a Professional School with a 2-year "Pre-Professional" education followed by the 2-3 year Professional Program.

 

The FERM Department offers a baccalaureate program in Forestry, with options in Forest Management, Forest Operations Management (incorporates a Business & Entrepreneurship  minor), and Forest Landscape Processes and Management. Each option is comprehensive but emphasizes different aspects of the management of forested lands.  FERM also offers the only Forest Engineering degree program in the nation, as well as a dual-degree Forest Engineering - Civil Engineering (FE/CE) program!  

Exceptional academics combined with cooperative education internships in one of the most forested regions of the world equals a world-class experience for our students. 

Our Forestry and Forest Engineering programs are accredited by the Society of American Foresters.  The Forest Engineering and Forest Engineering / Civil Engineering programs have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
