The toxicology minor at Nazareth College is designed for students who are interested in learning more about how the chemicals we're exposed to through our air, water, food, and other sources affect our health. It is one of only a dozen toxicology minors in the U.S. The toxicology minor suits students interested in many fields, such as the life and health sciences, public health, sociology, anthropology, public policy, economics, and law.
