The doctoral minor in Forestry is designed for students who wish to receive an Option A External Minor in Forestry to augment their Ph.D. curriculum. This minor option is not available to students pursuing a Ph.D. in Forestry.

Students who elect Forestry as a minor in their training for the doctorate will take at least 9 credits of courses. The courses will be determined by the student’s interest after consultation with the Forestry Graduate Programs Chair.
