Environmental Toxicology

Curriculum:

The academic year is divided into 2 semesters, each of about 15 weeks. Summer sessions last about 6 weeks. Courses are arranged in modular form, allowing students to complete them within 1-10 weeks, depending on the nature of the course.

The MSc program will take 2-3 years to complete. The PhD program will take about 4 years to complete for a student with a BSc and 3-4 years to complete for a student with an MSc, though this depends on the individual student.

All students in both the MSc and PhD degree programs are required to complete five required courses as well as elective courses. The number of credits required for thesis research depends on the degree program and the student’s previous degree, as follows:
