Graduate Certificate in Toxicology – Online

Help limit toxicity risks in our environment

Advancements in science and technology have created compound chemicals that increase toxicity risks for all living beings. From pharmaceuticals and pesticides to heavy metals and forever chemicals, toxins are everywhere today — in our soil, food systems, waterways and bodies.

When you earn a Graduate Certificate in Toxicology online from Oregon State University, you’ll explore how toxins impact our environment, human health and food safety and learn how to mitigate, regulate and limit their effects. In addition to learning advanced principles in toxicology and pharmacokinetics, you’ll gain insight into critical regulatory and research issues related to chemical exposure and human health risk assessments.

A unique, interdisciplinary program

Oregon State’s online toxicity graduate certificate bridges three important disciplines: environmental toxicology, which explores how chemicals move through ecosystems; molecular toxicology, which explores how chemicals impact living organisms at the cellular level; and computational toxicology, which uses computer modeling and simulation to predict potential health risks and toxicity.
