Master program in Environmental Toxicology
Our department is responsible for running the master program in Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology. The program covers effects of chemicals in humans and wildlife at different levels of biological organization, from molecular effects at the cellular level, via physiological effects on cells, organs and whole organisms to consequences at population and ecosystem levels. Substantial applied aspects within fields such as environmental and human health risk assessment of chemicals and environmental impact assessment are given. The program gives a good background for professional work related to environmental pollution and sustainable development and also for PhD-studies in Environmental Toxicology and related disciplines.
