Environmental chemistry is the science that comprises studies of natural or anthropogenic chemicals in relation to their impact on and interaction with biological and non-biological systems in the environment. Environmental chemistry integrates knowledge from most of the disciplines of chemistry.

Environmental chemistry is needed, together with other sciences (e.g. toxicology, epidemiology, statistics), for performing assessments of health hazards and -risks of chemicals in the environment.

The master’s programme in Environmental Chemistry is built on our knowledge of characterizing chemicals with regard to their chemico-physical properties and hence their performance and behavior in the environment and in organisms. Furthermore, the aim includes teaching the students how to communicate environmental chemistry issues with decision makers and other stakeholders in our society.
