The Yale school of Forestry & Environmental Studies is internationally known for its excellence. Founded in 1901, the school offers master’s degrees and doctoral programs and serves as a locus for research into local, regional and global environmental issues. Students here establish close relationships with faculty mentors, work in well-equipped laboratories and use the resources of one of the world’s largest library systems. They choose from a broad selection of courses at F&ES and at other graduate schools at the University, including the law school, the school of public health and the school of management. Students with well-defined cross-disciplinary interests can apply for joint degrees at nine different schools. In addition, students can enrich their studies by attending lectures, seminars, films and conferences, and by joining student groups suited to their interests. Students in our program come from roughly three dozen countries to study at Yale. They establish close networks among themselves that endure long after they have left New Haven.
