Willamette Forestry students

3+2 Forestry

If you’re passionate about creating a sustainable future and addressing the major environmental issues of our time, our 3+2 Forestry joint degree program is an outstanding option.

The 3+2 Forestry program combines the breadth of our curriculum with highly focused graduate study at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment.

After completing three years of required coursework at Willamette, you can begin pursuing your master’s degree in environmental management or forestry at Duke. You’ll get an education that prepares you for a broad range of careers related to the wise stewardship of our natural resources.


The program (which also can be completed in a 4+2 format) includes the following prerequisites:

  • Natural or social science courses related to your area of interest
  • College level course in Calculus (required)
  • College level course in Statistics (required)
  • Undergraduate experience and training in professional writing

You must earn a grade of B- or better in each prerequisite course and earn college credit for it to count toward the prerequisite. Pass/Fail and self-paced courses are not acceptable.
