Program Overview

Thomas Jefferson University and The Center for Forensic Science Research & Education (The Center) have collaborated to offer the MS program in Forensic Toxicology. This is a unique program designed to position students for advancement and professional development in the specific field of forensic toxicology.

This is a full-time, two year program with courses taught at both the  Jefferson - Center City campus and The Center's Willow Grove, PA location.

This partnership will provide our students with expertise in all areas of toxicology, including:

Students conducting research
  • Workplace drug testing
  • Post mortem analysis
  • Human performance toxicology
  • Legal procedure and ethics
  • Business & management coursework

The Program also gives students essential, hands-on training through the Center's internship program, provided at their state-of-the-art facility in Willow Grove, PA. This practicum immerses students in mock casework samples and provides them with experience in drug and toxin detection and extraction, quantification, instrumental analysis and data interpretation and report writing. The Program culminates in moot court experiences.

All of our master's programs are designated Professional Science Master’s (PSM). PSM is a graduate/ professional degree grounded in science and designed for a variety of career options in business, government or non-profit organizations. The degree combines advanced coursework in science with an array of professional skill-development activities aligned with the needs of 21st century employers. Learn more about PSM on their website.
