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.
This degree provides the student with curriculum and research opportunities in one of the world’s most significant science and policy issues: the environment. Students will study ecosystems management, the impact of industrialization on the environment, economics and resource availability, regulation and law, environmental ethics, landscape-level conservation, political ecology, and environmental technology and management.
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.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques, scientific and transferable skills applicable for environmental chemistry research.
The Environmental Risk Assessment Certificate provides a solid foundation in the characterization of source areas, linking fate and transport mechanisms, and evaluating exposure pathways to assess environmental risk.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The SMaP Masters aims to train future professionals and scientists capable of meeting the challenges presented by fast-moving changes to legislation and to the fast-paced development of depollution fields and technology in industrialised countries - people who are also capable of implementing this technology in emerging countries.
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.
