Master of Toxicology

The MTOX degree is a non-thesis master’s degree designed for students who desire advanced study in Toxicology, but do not wish to pursue research training. Students who desire a research-intensive program are encouraged to apply to the M.S. or Ph.D. degree programs. Master of Toxicology students may be part-time or full-time, thus this degree option is often sought by professionals seeking graduate training in Toxicology while maintaining a full-time career.
A minimum of 30 credit hours is required, with at least 20 credit hours of graduate-level courses. The program may not include research credits and no more than 2 credit hours of seminar, unless the total program exceeds 30 hours. Courses at the 400 level counted towards the minimum 30-hour requirement may not come from the major field. At the discretion of the student’s Advisor, a review paper focusing on the student’s interest in some aspect of Toxicology might be required as a special problem (TOX 620). All courses must be approved by the student’s Advisor. The MTOX degree is an Option B degree program, that is, no advisory committee or final oral exam is required. *Students are required to enroll in either GN 701 or CBS 770.
