The Environmental and Molecular Toxicology program offers an undergraduate minor in Environmental Toxicology that is available to all baccalaureate degree students at North Carolina State University. The minor is intended to provide undergraduate students with an understanding of how chemicals and physical agents can adversely affect biological systems and the environment, including the mechanisms of chemically induced toxicity, the fate and effects of chemicals in the environment, and the evaluation of chemical hazards and risks. The minor is especially appropriate for (but not limited to) students majoring in the biological or agricultural sciences, physical sciences or science education.

The minor will be administrated by Dr. Seth Kullman, the Undergraduate Coordinator. NC State undergraduate students may be admitted to the minor after successfully completing 60 credit hours.
