About the Programme

The Master of Science in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry is a two-year interdisciplinary program involving Department of Biology and Department of Chemistry. This programme provides the vital link between Environmental Toxicology and Environmental Chemistry. The main focus of the programme is the fate and effects of pollutants, and how they are distributed in the environment (including air, water, soil and food chains) both on a local and a global scale.

Studies on the interaction between environmental toxicants and organisms (including human), and how this affects individuals, populations and ecosystems are central. Methods will include field work and/or experimental studies in laboratory on individual organisms (in vivo) or on cell cultures (in vitro). It is also possible to specialise within the area of environmental monitoring of organic and inorganic chemical toxicants. This includes method development, and quality assurance using state of the art equipment.

A wide range of environmental pollutants and methods of pollution control, which are of utmost importance for the conservation of natural resources and ecosystems will also be studied. Such skills and experiences are extremely marketable, making the candidates from the programme attractive to a wide range of employers both in public and private sectors.

A diverse team of scientists is ready to offer you a two year international, interdisciplinary Masters programme. You will work in a group comprising both Norwegian and international students. All teaching is in English. The programme also offers you the opportunity to experience one semester studying in Svalbard (UNIS), an archipelago situated in the heart of the Arctic. MSc in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry offers two specialisations:
