Exposure Sciences (MS)

Students in the Exposure Science program will study methods for the identification, measurement, and simulation of human exposure and dose resulting from single and multimedia environmental exposures. Students will receive training on various aspects of exposure analysis such as measurements and modeling; chemical, biological, and physical principles required to analyze human exposure from single and multiple routes; mechanisms of exposure; development of molecular biomarkers; and genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic metrics that assess exposure in the context of health effects.

Learn about characterizing exposures to various kinds of environmental agents, about health effects associated with these exposures, and about methods for controlling such exposures in the workplace or general environment.

Why Minnesota?

  • Well-rounded curriculum: Undergo training in theory, and to state-of-the-art techniques for air and biological monitoring, for characterizing aerosols, for mathematical modeling in uncertain environments, for designing control systems, and for science-based risk assessment.
  • Flexible: Customize your graduate program to match your¬†background and interests.
  • Personalized attention: By working with your EnHS adviser, you will be exposed to the fundamental elements of scientific critical thinking; how to develop an idea into a research hypothesis, how to test the hypothesis with appropriate methods, how to make scientific inferences, and how to publish the results of your work.
