The toxicology minor at Nazareth University is designed for students who are interested in learning more about how the chemicals we are exposed to through our air, water, food, and other sources affect our health.

This 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.
