BS Zoology

Zoology is a multidisciplinary subject. The program starts by developing a fundamental understanding of the subject in students by teaching them about organisms and their genetic, morphological, and physiological attributes, their surrounding environment, and their role in the conservation of the environment. Zoology is a combination of various disciplines such as Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Entomology, Evolution, Taxonomy, Freshwater Biology, Fisheries, and Wildlife, etc. This subject has a significant role in human resource development, food security, environmental conservation, sustainable development, and ultimately in the alleviation of poverty. The foremost objective was to provide an opportunity for the students to equip themselves with the blend of skills and knowledge to meet challenges in the national and international arena.
