What to Expect
Considerable instruction in both years of this program occurs off campus in the field. The Year 1 forestry field school takes up the first five weeks of the 17-week semester. Year 2 field training occurs in the Cache-Percotte Forest, among other areas. Field school is not a course in itself, but rather an outdoor hands-on classroom-type environment. Full attendance is mandatory.
Classroom & Study Hours
Students can expect to spend, on average:
- 40 hours per week attending classes over the course of a semester.
- 20 to 30 hours per week studying and completing class assignments.
