Undergraduates who wish to pursue studies in toxicology will be admitted to the specialization in Nutritional Sciences-Toxicology in the department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology. The "major" has been reformulated as a "specialization" to foster a unifying theme in NST education under an umbrella of metabolic biology, while continuing to allow for distinct interests (specializations). Required courses for graduating with a specialization in molecular toxicology will remain the same as the major, but broader elective options will be encouraged. Diplomas and transcripts of NST undergraduates will denote the specialization undertaken: e.g. Department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology: specialization in Toxicology.
