Prospective Students

During fall 2019, the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies will be accepting inquiries for matriculation in fall 2020 for the MESc program and potentially the Ph.D. program. Note that the application period for fall 2019 is now closed. Please check back in next fall for updated information on applying to the program.

If you are interested in working with us through the graduate programs please contact Mark directly at mark.bradford at

More generally, if you’re interested in doing graduate research at the School, with our group or another group you should :

  • Arrange a meeting/conversation with the prospective advisor to discuss your interests.
  • Come visit FES, Yale, and New Haven to see if it’s a good fit.
  • Apply to the Master’s program (MESc) or Doctoral program (note: again, deadlines are usually early January).
