As the Head of the Department & staff, we share as much, if not more, the enthusiasm & optimism of our students. It is imperative to instil in our students a culture that promotes performance- oriented endeavours. Zoology the study of animals truly represents the most challenging and exciting frontier in science. The subject helps in acquiring a great insight into animal behaviour, the way they live, their needs, and many more things. Zoology deals with the environment of animals, how they adapt to the changing environment and their needs like nutrition, genetics, characteristics, evolution, physiology, reproduction, development etc. The subject also includes the study of modern techniques like biotechnology, microbiology, bioinformatics, molecular biology etc. for an in-depth understanding of the zoological world. With the imbalance in the ecosystem today, the acute need has been felt to preserve nature and even animals that are on the brink of extinction.

The 21st century has been termed the century of Biology, with biomedical, biotechnological, biodiversity and environmental issues at the forefront of nearly every facet of or society. Zoology provides the core of understanding and addressing these problems, from the cellular and molecular to the ecosystem and landscape levels of complexity. Zoology forms the natural bridge to the other disciplines such as Chemistry, Psychology, Sociology, Medicine, Botany, Geography and Anthropology. Within the Department, students experience the depth of Zoology in the classroom, laboratory, and in the field. We have vibrant and interactive faculty, committed to excellence in education, and are proud of the outstanding students and dedicated staff who make this possible.
