The Master of Science in Environmental Toxicology at the University of South Alabama offers an interdisciplinary curriculum to teach graduate students the biochemical and physiological processes resulting from the interactions between toxic compounds and the biosphere.

Students in this program will learn to:
•  evaluate the impact of specific pollutants in the environment
•  perform laboratory and field-tests to monitor environmental pollutants
•  control and manage toxic substances
•  identify water and air pollutants
•  be up to date concerning current and new legislation and protocols in this area
•  apply research techniques in different disciplines in science and engineering
Graduates from this program will be able to work in industrial settings in the areas of Industrial Hygiene, Environmental Health, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Toxicology, Pharmaceutical industry or to continue their education by pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Toxicology or related areas. In addition, graduates from the program will be qualified for jobs requiring MS degrees in their original areas of concentration. For example, a chemist or a chemical engineer will be better qualified to work in a chemical or pharmaceutical company if, in addition to his/her background in chemistry or engineering, the applicant has the training in toxicology to address the environmental impact of the project.
