(2) The Master of Science Program

The master of science degree is an acadmic degree granted by the graduate institute of Forestry. student may pursue a degree in Silviculture, Resource Management, Forest Products or Resource Conservation. Full time students must be in residence for one to four years and must complete at least 24 credits of appropriate courses and 6 thesis credits, and must submit an acceptable thesis based on original research. A student must fulfill all these requirements and pass thesis defense to receive a Master of Science. The required courses for each division are listed as follows:

(1) Silviculture Division:
seminar (2), special Topic research (2), thesis (6).

(2) Resource Management Divison:
Seminar (2), special topic research (2), thesis (6).

(3) The Doctor of Philosophy Program

The Graduate Industitute of Forestry offers programs leding to the doctor of philosophy degree with requirements of 2 to 7 years of study beyond th emaster's degree and completion of at least 18 semester units (not including the 12 credits for the thesis), of courses uniquely related to the dissertation research in the fields of silviculture, resources management, forest product, and dendrology, after completing the postgraduate study with satisfactory scores, graduates are accorded the doctor of philosophy.

ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

1. Seminars and symposia are conducted on a non-periodical basis. Scholars and other specialists from abroad may be invited to attend such meetings to exchange ideas and information on the latest developments in forestry research and technology.
2. The Department of Foresty publishes the Journal of the NTU Experimental Forest and other cooperative research reports.
3. Each year, the Department of Forestry receives a total of about 20 research grants from the National Science Council, the Council of Agriculture, the Forestry Bureau, the Tourism Bureau and other governmental agencies.
