In its 2021 Global Rankings, education technology firm Plexuss has recognized Stephen F. Austin State University as having the top forestry program in Texas.

“I believe this ranking is a testament to the passion our faculty members share for the profession of forestry, as well as their dedication to ensuring our students succeed,” said Dr. Hans Williams, dean of SFA’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture. “The recognition is especially meaningful as we celebrate the 75-year anniversary of the forestry program at SFA.”

More than six million students utilize the Plexuss online platform to connect with their peers, build professional networks, and research colleges and universities. In 2018, Microsoft recognized the company as one of the top 26 startup companies to contribute to machine learning and data science.

Plexuss determines university and program rankings through extensive input from education partners, data scientists, employers, parents and high school counselors.

SFA’s Bachelor of Science in Forestry offers six areas of emphasis, including agroforestry, fire management, forest management, forest wildlife management, human dimensions in natural resources and urban forestry.
