Forest and Landscape Management focus on various aspects of forest and landscape management through an integrated forested landscape approach, addressing many of the societal challenges. The programme starts with focus on fundamentals of natural and social sciences, aiming to create a strong foundation for further studies. In the second half of the 1st year, courses create a firm base in forest and landscape ecology and management disciplines. The 2nd year focuses on understanding the myriad of interacting human and natural processes over a continuum of spatial and temporal scales. Interdisciplinary courses are given on how to incorporate such complexity in practical planning and management. The 3rd year gives students the opportunity to focus deeply in management of forests or other landscape types, depending on the choice of field specialisation. Students will be able to choose one of the main fields of study, landscape architecture or forest science, for their degree project.The programme will give you sustainable knowledge about forests and landscapes. You will also take courses on urban forests, communication and social ecology, as well as basic courses in forest science which investigate the conditions and potential of forests and how they are managed. The programme is provided at SLU’s campus in Alnarp, 10 kilometres from Malmö. Tuition is in English and the programme has an international perspective. There are also opportunities to study abroad. Graduates will be able to work as a specialist or advisor at a government authority, municipality, forestry company or in nature tourism. You can also continue your studies on one of our Master’s programmes.SLU actively promotes a healthy work and study environment and equal opportunities. SLU’s profile is focused on the understanding of biological natural resources and challenges to society such as the supply of raw materials, water and energy, and climate change, and are linked to our areas of responsibility. These challenges, and humankind’s use and management of biological natural resources, are also the subject of the UN goals for sustainable development.
