Toxicology Major

Toxicology addresses adverse effects of chemicals on animals and humans and includes exposure assessment, hazard identification, dose-response analysis, and risk characterization.

The Toxicology major helps prepare students for professional school or careers in industry, research, and government with coursework in pharmacology, molecular and cellular toxicology, and environmental toxicology.

Our program is truly unique. One of only eight majors in toxicology and pharmacology in the United States, it is the only one that blends molecular/cellular and environmental studies of toxicology and pharmacology.
