Dear Prospective Students,

Welcome to the website of the Department of Forestry and Management of Environment and Natural Resources of the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry of the Democritus University of Thrace.

In its twenty-year history, our Department has contributed to the formation of the scientific identity of Forestry in the country and continues to contribute to ensuring the demanding criteria for the expression and practice of our science, offering a complete undergraduate program, with a special physiognomy and adapted to modern needs. The culmination of all these tireless efforts is the fact that our Department is today the only one, among the five University Departments of Forestry in Greece, that awards to its graduates a single and inseparable postgraduate degree (integrated master’s degree), filling us with pride, but also a strong sense of responsibility for the continuation of our efforts.

The dedication of the Department to excellence, its student-centered physiognomy, the state-of-the-art equipped laboratories, the obligatory elaboration of a diploma thesis are, among other things, the cornerstone of our Undergraduate Program. The quality of the studies in our Department is reflected in the high level of the diploma theses, in the publications of our students in reputable scientific journals, in the numerous distinctions of the students during their postgraduate studies in a well-known university as well as in their professional career in general.

The connection of the Department with the labor market, the possibility of doing internships in companies and organizations, mobility opportunities through European programs, the cultivation of critical thinking, the development of leadership skills and the cultivation of a spirit of cooperation and creativity enhance the competitive advantage of our graduates in the labor market and in their subsequent academic development.

On our website you will find information about the human resources, the activities of the Department, the content of the Curriculum and the opportunities that the Department provides to undergraduate and postgraduate students, PhD candidates and postdoctoral students, in order to enrich their knowledge, skills and scientific training.

We wish all our students, old and new ones, good studies and good progress, with the assurance that we will always be by their side, as helpers in their efforts.

The Head of the Department,

Professor Georgios E. Tsantopoulos
