Forestry and Environmental Studies

The School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (F&ES), Yale’s environment school, is predominantly a graduate and professional program for those seeking master’s and doctoral degrees in environmental management and environmental science. However, it also offers a number of courses open to undergraduates, including many that count toward the Environmental Studies major. The school’s faculty conduct research on environmental and natural resource management problems and questions across a diversity of scales.

A number of courses are offered specifically for undergraduates and are listed in the Yale College Programs of Study. Qualified undergraduates may pursue a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years through the school; interested students apply during the fall term of the senior year, or in the two admission cycles following their graduation. Students should consult with the F&ES Admissions Office during their sophomore or junior year to adequately prepare for the combined program.
