More information about the Environmental Chemistry & Toxicology discipline

Environmental Chemistry is the science of processes that influence the composition and chemical properties of the environment, proper for habitation. It is concerned with the background, behaviour, movement and impact of chemical compounds in all layers of the environment. It researches the means through which the human factor affects these layers. Environmental Chemistry utilizes knowledge and tools from other sciences in the study of air, water and soil. It addresses issue of contamination and degradation and it aims to exploit theoretical knowledge for creating solutions to the aforementioned problems.

Environmental Toxicology is more focused on the destructive effects of chemical agents on the living organisms of all ecosystems. Empowering the knowledge provided by biology, computer science, math and chemistry, it sets out to understand and prevent harmful impact caused by toxic agents.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Chemical Engineering

    The UCLA Chemical Engineering Department was established in 1983 and received ABET/AICHE accreditation shortly thereafter.

  • Master in Environmental Toxicology

    Environmental Toxicology provides an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge of the interactions of toxic elements and chemicals (drugs, pesticides, industrial pollutants, and natural products) with organisms and the environment. Specific disciplinary interests of the faculty range from basic studies in environmental toxicology, including biochemistry, nutrition, genetics, environmental chemistry, epidemiology, and veterinary medicine, to societal aspects such as risk communication, public perceptions, risk management, and environmental law.

  • Master in Alcohol and Drug Studies

    The Graduate Certificate in Alcohol and Drug Studies is available to graduates of medical, nursing, psychology and other allied health disciplines. The program has been designed to provide graduates from medical, allied health (including psychology) and nursing degrees with core skills to respond to substance misuse in a range of health settings, including those which focus on psychological health, mental health nursing, medical practice, social work, occupational therapy, and Indigenous health settings.

  • Master in Chemical Engineering

    Columbia's program in chemical engineering is one of the oldest in the country. It has continuously evolved since its inception to remain relevant and vital to the nation's workforce.

  • Master in Tropical Medicine

    The Graduate Program in Tropical Medicine of the Institute of Tropical Medicine of São Paulo (IMTSP) had the authorization of its creation by the Board of Graduate Studies of the University of São Paulo on 20.December.2006, published in the Official Diary of the State of São Paulo and got the recommendation of CAPES (Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel), through its Scientific Technical Council, on meetings between the period from 23 to 25th of July 2007, attributing grade 05 to the Program.

  • Master in Environmental Science and Policy

    Chicago Harris and the Division of the Physical Sciences jointly offer the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy. The broad objective of the program is to provide students with the academic background in both policy and environmental science required for informed decision making in business and government. To a large extent, the curriculum of this program draws upon courses already in place at Chicago Harris and in the Division of the Physical Sciences, although an introductory overview course and an independent study are designed to integrate the policy and science aspects of the program.

  • Master in Biochemistry

    Through the Biochemistry MS Program, faculty in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry will train students with a suitable Bachelor's degree for a career in Biochemistry.

  • Master in Chemistry

    The Department of Chemistry provides facilities for students intending to work toward the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The Department of Chemistry is a vital, expanding hub of scientific inquiry with deep historic roots and a ready grasp on the future.

  • Master in Chemical Engineering

    The NanoEngineering graduate degree program prepares students to enter the Nanotechnology workforce, as well as prepare students to enter a wider variety of engineering, science and/or medical career paths. It is clear that Nanotechnology-based industries will play a major role in the future economy.

  • Master in Environmental Sciences

    The Environmental Science Graduate Program (ESGP) is a multi-college endeavor at The Ohio State University (OSU) and is comprised of faculty from many departments within the colleges of Biological Sciences; Engineering; Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; Mathematical and Physical Sciences; Medicine; Social and Behavioral Sciences; and Veterinary Medicine.

  • Master in Pharmacy (Clinical Toxicology)

    The Master's degree program is designed for health science professionals who wish to advance their knowledge in the medical and toxicological principles of toxicants, drugs of abuse, drug biotransformation, analysis of drugs, and treatment approaches to the poisoned or overdosed patient.
