Admissions Requirements for Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology

Program Requirements:

Entry to the program requires completion of a baccalaureate degree in a field appropriate as preparation for graduate study in environmental sciences. Students normally will come to the program from an environmental sciences related discipline such as atmospheric science, aquatic science, earth science, environmental chemistry, hydrology, or soil science, in a basic science such as biology, chemistry, or physics. Students may conduct research under the supervision of a sponsoring faculty member in any of the following field areas. Students must specify a field area for entry into the program as entrance requirements are specific to the field area.

Track Requirements:

There are no entrance requirements for the Environmental Chemistry area beyond the general requirements for admission to the ESGP. For Ecotoxicology, prospective students would be expected to have had courses in General Biology/Zoology and Organic Chemistry. Students who do not have sufficient background to take the core course or specific elective courses may, however, need to first take prerequisite courses.
