Doctor of Philosophy in Toxicology

Toxicology research and training at Texas A&M has been recognized as a distinct discipline since 1970 when the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved a Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in Toxicology. The academic component of the program is administered by the Interdisciplinary Faculty of Toxicology (IFT), which is composed of faculty and graduate students from multiple departments, colleges, and associated laboratories. The Toxicology program crosses boundaries in veterinary medicine, health sciences, environmental sciences, chemistry/biochemistry, biology, and physics.

Admission to the program requires the successful completion of courses in advanced biology and/or chemistry or their equivalents, and approval by both the IFT and a participating academic department. Graduate research assistantships and scholarships are available on a competitive basis.

Completion of a dissertation is required for the PhD in Toxicology. A list of required and elective courses for students in the PhD program can be obtained from the Toxicology Graduate Advisor or Chair.
