Toxicology is the study of the effects of chemicals and other potentially harmful agents on biological systems. The field draws upon the sciences of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, cell and molecular biology, neuroscience and pathology. The core curriculum provides a comprehensive background in toxicology that is enhanced by elective offerings in the department and the many basic and health science courses available at CSU.
The non-thesis M.S. in Toxicology, Plan B transitions graduates into MD, DVM, PharmD and other professional programs, as well as prepares students for research careers in industry, government and academia. Graduates can also find professional employment in public and private sector positions such as environmental protection, risk assessment or product safety evaluation.
