Environmental Toxicology Minor

This program provides a thorough overview of environmental toxicology. Students who complete this program will be more qualified and eligible for employment with various businesses, governmental and non-governmental agencies, and academia engaged in environmental monitoring, assessment, and research.

Students who are interested in an environmental toxicology minor should contact the department early.

Program Requirements

A 2.00 or higher grade point average (GPA) is required.

Lower Division Requirements

The following courses are required. Most students who are pursuing science degree programs will already have credit for most of these courses.

Students complete all of

BISC 101 - General Biology (4)
