Master's programme in Toxicology
The programme was one of the first toxicology programmes in the world when it started in 1976. The programme is unique in its two-year cohesive focus on toxicology and human health.
The programme gives students an in-depth knowledge of the broad and interdisciplinary toxicological field. The programme focuses on human health and prepares students for either a research or professional career and provides a solid platform for doctoral education in toxicology-related fields or employment in risk/safety assessment-related areas in the public sector or in industry.

The programme, which runs in Swedish, has approximately 80 students divided into three tracks: Behavioural Sciences, Ergonomics, and Occupational Safety and Health Management. The students have (depending on track) different backgrounds, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, behavioural science, and nursing.
