To be considered for admission in the Environmental Toxicology PhD program, prospective students must have a BA/BS degree in a basic science from an accredited institution of higher education. Their previous coursework must include chemistry through organic chemistry, biochemistry, and cell biology.
The admissions committee reviews applicants according to their personal statements, background and experience, record of academic achievement, demonstrated academic potential, letters of recommendation, compatibility of interests with program faculty, and other factors. Test scores and GPAs provide competitive points of reference for admission but are not alone decisive in the admissions review. Doctoral applicants are expected to substantially exceed the general admission preferences.
