Master of Science in Environmental Science

Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology, and Risk Assessment

This concentration addresses the fate and transport of chemicals in the environment and the hazards and risks to human health and the environment associated with chemical pollution. Courses on the chemical/physical/biological reactions of pollutants in soil, aquatic, and atmospheric systems are included. Additional courses study the hazards associated with chemicals used in modern society, technologies available to manage and remediate contaminated sites, the toxicological effects of chemical exposure, and methods to assess risks associated with chemicals in the environment. Courses should be selected in consultation with a faculty advisor.
