Chemical and Environmental Toxicology

Program Information
Faculty: Ottawa-Carleton Chemistry Institute (OCCI), Geoscience Centre (OCGC), Institute for Biology (OCIB)
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Toxicology
Description Toxicology is the study of effects of toxic substances on living systems. These toxic substances can either be organic or inorganic, synthetic or natural materials. The study of toxicology crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries such as chemistry, biology, and the environmental sciences. Environmental toxicology further extends to aspects of chemical transport, fate, persistence and biological accumulation of toxic substances and their effects at the population and community levels. While individual researchers usually specialize in a particular area, toxicologists must be able to appreciate significant research in other fields and therefore require an understanding of the basic principles of other disciplines. To meet this challenge the University of Ottawa and Carleton University offer a Collaborative Program in the supporting Institutes (OCIB, OCCI, and OCGC) leading to a M.Sc. with Specialization in Chemical and Environmental Toxicology.
