MSc in Tropical and International Forestry (TIF) at the Faculty of
Forestry, Georg-August University, Germany

The MSc program is a 2-year internationally recognized program with a main
goal to train experts for the sustainable management of forests worldwide.
Because of the decades of experience collected at the Faculty of Forestry,
the main focus is on tropical and subtropical forests. However, most of
the acquired knowledge and management skills can be used in any country of
the world.

The main target groups for this MSc program are German and international
students who are interested in pursuing a professional career in the
following areas: international research and development organizations;
developing countries; or institutions, both in Germany and abroad, that
specialize in international aspects of forestry. The Curriculum is focused
on the needs of students from all over the world who want to specialize in
this area. We also welcome international students who have already gained
professional experience in their home country and who wish to specialize
in the field of tropical and international forestry.

The program includes a range of different teaching methods. Besides
‘traditional’ lectures, field work and excursions are part of the
curriculum, during which teaching is done in small groups. Some of the
modules consist of seminars where the students are required to give a
presentation on a specific subject; the subject is then discussed with the
whole group. We consider the interdisciplinary project a very innovative
educational method. During the project, the students work as a team on a
forestry related problem with a focus from different disciplines. Students
have the choice between a project outside Germany or within Germany. In
the projects abroad we have worked on real life problems in cooperation
with DED or GTZ programs. The project in Germany is designed for foreign
students and focuses on sustainable forest management as practiced in
Germany. Students will get hands-on experience on what the effects are of
a forestry-related intervention.

Experience has shown that personal and professional contact made during
this MSc program is an excellent way to your own professional network. The
international Alumni activities are handled by the Centre for Tropical and
Subtropical Agriculture and Forestry <http://www.uni-goett...n/sh/24288.html> with Alumni networks <http://www.alumni-network.de/> covering
South-East-Asia, the Egypt-Arab-Region, Iran and neighboring countries,
and Latin America .

Application Deadline: August 31, 2008 (At the respective German Embassies
in candidates’ countries), or September 30, 2008 (for the direct
submission to the University of Goettingen).

Scholarship: 7-8 scholarships are available each year for the candidates
from the developing countries particularly from the tropics and
