MS in Toxicology

The Toxicology MS Program  at the University of Maryland provides professional training in both basic and translational research designed to better understand the mechanisms by which chemicals adversely affect cellular processes and impact human and environmental health.  Both thesis and non-thesis Masters degrees are available in our program depending upon the career goals of individual students.  Advanced training in state-of-the-art research tools is an important focus for MS students completing a Thesis Masters degree. Our faculty conduct research in many areas of toxicology, including: mechanisms of cell injury, cell death and carcinogenesis; reproductive toxicology; neurotoxicology; aquatic toxicology; analytical toxicology; risk assessment; and occupational and environmental health.

Students in the Toxicology Program have an option of pursuing either a non-thesis or thesis option.
