Forests are becoming ever more important worldwide. They play a vital role in conserving natural habitats and biodiversity, provide us with the valuable raw material wood, and also often have a high recreational value. In order to conserve the forest ecosystem and its wide range of functions, forest management needs to consider ecological, economic, and social aspects in equal measure. Another global challenge is the impact of climate change on the world’s forests. Forests need to be adapted to meet changing climactic conditions, and they also function as a carbon sink. The goal of the degree program “M.Sc. Forest Sciences/ Forstwissenschaften” is to train students to become forest experts who are capable of addressing the current challenges and questions of ecologically, economically, and socially sustainable forest management in theory and practice and in both national and international contexts.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
