Masters in Environmental Chemistry & Toxicology

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.
