About the Environmental Toxicology Master’s Program
The M.S. program (36 hours) is composed of coursework emphasizing the principles of toxicology, the environmental fate of chemicals, statistical approaches to study design, data handling, and data analysis, and seminars in environmental toxicology. Supplemental coursework, research, and thesis hours are chosen by the student with the guidance of their committee, allowing for focus on the student’s particular research emphasis. Master’s students must perform an original research project, prepare a written thesis, and defend their work in a public defense.
Research areas include Aquatic Toxicology, Ecotoxicology, Human Health Sciences, Environmental Chemistry, Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology, Infectious Disease Research, Wildlife Toxicology, Fibers, Protective Textiles, and Countermeasures to Chemical Toxins, among others.
