Understand the impacts of environmental contaminants on the plants and animals of a region
An emphasis in environmental toxicology and chemistry will train students to deal with environmental issues while also providing them with an understanding of the impacts of environmental contaminants on the plants and animals of a region.
Understand what factors (chemical, biological, physical) impact the fate and transport of chemicals in the environment
Recognize phase partitioning and how to determine the ultimate fate of a chemical released into the environment
Become ideally suited for environmental consulting firms, pharmaceutical companies, government agencies such as EPA, USGS, and others
Become well prepared for graduate programs in environmental toxicology, chemistry, ecotoxicology, or any other science-based graduate program
