Thank you for your interest in graduate programs within the UGA Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program (ITP). This program offers a Master of Science and Ph.D. in Toxicology.

All completed applications will be reviewed by the ITP Admissions Committee. This year the first review takes place in mid-November. As additional completed applications arrive, additional review sessions will occur.

Recommendations of acceptance will usually be sent to the Graduate School soon after each review session. The Graduate School will then send notifications to applicants.

Current UGA Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program MS students who wish to transfer to the Ph.D. program should submit a full application including GRE scores and letters of recommendation to the ITP program office for consideration by the admissions committee.

All successful UGA Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program applicants must have a toxicology faculty member who has agreed to take on/serve as a major advisor. The applicant must identify faculty working in areas of interest, then begin a dialogue with those faculty members. The toxicology office should be kept informed of your progress in this area. Faculty members willing to become major advisors will be listed on this page under "Major Advisor Announcement" and on the Program Director's page.  THIS LIST MAY NOT BE COMPLETE!!  It is always a good idea to view our Faculty listings and determine if anyone is doing research you are interested in also doing.  Once you identify prospective faculty members, you should make contact with them.
