The core content of the course of study Forestry and Environment is the management of (forest) ecosystems and forest landscapes on a scientific basis. The course of study thus focuses on the interrelationships between “forest and humankind” in a variety of dimensions. The program integrates disciplines from the natural sciences, engineering, and social sciences. The curriculum deals with the conservation and the sustainable use of the Earth’s forests and forest landscapes. This often involves complex ecosystems humans are dependent on for their very survival: for their water, their air, and the relaxation they provide, for their effects on the global climate, their animals, and their plants, and last but not least for their wood – a renewable ecological raw material. The content and findings of research on forest ecosystems can serve as a model for every innovative strategy for managing natural resources.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

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.
