Specialisation in Chemistry, Toxicology and Health (ChemTox)

The ChemTox-specialisation is composed of the following subject areas:

  • Atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic environmental chemistry
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Human toxicology
  • Epidemiology
  • Risk assessment

Together, the subject areas provide the knowledge required to link the presence of substances in the environment with the possible hazardous and environmentally harmful effects.

Study tracks

Customising your course of study within the specialisation will allow you to become more deeply involved with a specific subject area. Various elective and restricted elective coursework enables you to design a programme of your own, or a course of study that focuses on one of the following:
