PhD Toxicology Environmental Science

Toxicology is the scientific study of the effects of chemicals on organisms; in environmental science, the focus tends to be on the distribution, effect, and fate of chemicals in the environment. The Toxicology concentration helps Ph.D. candidates refine their understanding of the effects of human-created wastes and other toxic chemicals and helps them create research to minimize harm and create thriving ecosystems.

The environmental science program is an interdisciplinary collaboration among the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Geography, the Department of Chemistry, the Department of Philosophy and Religion Studies and other departments at UNT to examine major environmental issues through an interdisciplinary perspective.

The program offers graduate studies in environmental science that lead to the PhD, granted through the Department of Biological Sciences. The course of study, involving both core and elective courses, is designed for those students who desire an interdisciplinary perspective concerning human-environmental interactions.
