The Department of Environmental Toxicology administers two graduate group programs: the Agricultural and Environmental Chemistrygraduate group and the Pharmacology and Toxicology graduate group. The Agricultural and Environmental Chemistry graduate group focuses on the effects (dispersal, breakdown and persistence) of chemicals on the environment, while the Pharmacology and Toxicology graduate group is centered around human health effects of chemical exposure.

Our department works closely with the Forensic Science Graduate Program currently administered through UC Davis Extension. The program provides a strong foundation in science, together with an understanding of the logic and workings of the legal system. Coursework covers the theoretical underpinnings of the biological and physical sciences as used in the collection, analysis and interpretation of evidence.
