Environmental and Integrative Toxicological Sciences
The doctoral program in Environmental and Integrative Toxicological Sciences (EITS) partners with 16 other graduate programs at MSU and offers a dual-major program that trains students in toxicology in the context of a basic science discipline. Two tracks are offered, one designed for students entering with little background in biology (e.g., those with undergraduate degrees in engineering, chemistry, natural resources, etc.) and the other for students entering with biological science training. The dual-major approach offers choice, flexibility and mentoring by an outstanding toxicology faculty affiliated with MSU’s Center for Integrative Toxicology. The goal of the EITS program is to ensure that our students obtain in-depth training in a basic discipline of their interest (e.g., cell biology, genetics, pharmacology, molecular biology, etc.) while receiving the training needed to become independent research investigators and leaders in the field of toxicological science.
