Am I prepared for the MPS in Toxicology coursework?
Students with a bachelor’s degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry or related science will be best prepared for the study of toxicology. Basic knowledge of biochemistry, at the level offered by a comprehensive undergraduate course, will be important. However, the absence of a biochemistry course will not be sufficient for rejection of an otherwise competitive candidate. An appropriate course can be taken at UNC-Chapel Hill prior to the toxicology courses listed in the curriculum.
What are examples of courses I will take in this program?
The MPS in Toxicology program can be completed in 16 months by full-time students.
