Our Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology & Risk Assessment concentration, will allow you to examine the fate and transport of chemicals in the environment, including the health hazards and social impacts associated with chemical pollution. In this concentration you will study the chemical, physical, and biological reactions of pollutants in the soil, water, and atmospheric systems. You will also explore technologies used to manage and remediate contaminated sites, the toxicological effects of chemical exposure, and methods to assess and mitigate the risks associated with chemical use.
SPEA is widely recognized as a global leader in environmental chemistry, toxicology, and assessment education, research and public service. As a graduate in this field, you will be well prepared for a number of roles—from environmental consultant and scientist to data or project manager. You will be poised for professional success in virtually any setting—whether in the United States or around the world, in the private or public sector, and at any level of government.
