ENV 207 - Environmental Toxicology

Credits: 3 Credits

This course provides core knowledge of epidemiology and toxicology and focuses on environmental and occupational health issues. Ecotoxicology quantifies the effects of stressors upon natural populations, communities, and ecosystems and integrates the effects of stressors across all levels of biological organization, from the molecular to biotic communities and even whole ecosystems.  The epidemiology section introduces epidemiological concepts focusing on toxins in the environment.  The toxicology section focuses on the principles of toxicology. 

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Apply basic aspects of environmental pollution, discuss the principles of this discipline’s role in society and be able to assess ethical issues within this field. 
  • Assess, evaluate, and adopt relevant and reliable new information in scientific research. 
  • Apply a wide academic knowledge in biology, chemistry, and environmental science, focusing on toxicology. 
  • Assess and apply knowledge of chemical properties of different groups of compounds and biological effects and important cycles as the basis for a comprehensive understanding of environmental pollution and toxicity. 
  • Apply knowledge of the physicochemical and biophysical processes of importance to the natural environment. 
  • Apply knowledge of relevant methods and hypothesis testing, including experimental analysis of chemical and biological, statistical techniques, and other tools used to analyze and solve biological and or chemical issues in research.
