Master's Curriculum

Master's students will not be actively recruited, nor is it anticipated that they will be supported financially. Maintenance of a Master's program in toxicology will serve the needs of local and regional students who wish to pursue a Master's degree, as a second degree or part time. In our experience, many of these individuals are non-traditional students, some working full time, often performing the functions of toxicologists in their jobs, and needing more formal training. The M.S. is a thesis-only program.
