The academic training imparted to the department’s M.Sc. students, equips them to enter doctoral programs of leading institutes in the country and abroad. The current research and teaching in the Department include diverse aspects of Zoology with a balance of organismic and reductionist biology. It offers teaching and research programmes in the diverse areas, such as Taxonomy and Basic Entomology, Biochemistry and Bioinstrumentation, Genetics, Cell Biology, Mini Research, Fundamental of Statistics, Endocrinology and Immunology, Molecular Biology and Genomics, Evolution and Ecology, Research methodology, Animal Physiology, Developmental Biology, Animal Diversity, Entomology, Fish Biology. Apart from this courses M.Sc. programme is being revised under NEP 2020 for the welfare of the students and to fulfil the vision and mission of the Department. Besides, the courses like Techno-professional skills, Personality Developmental course, Generic Elective, Research Methodology, Research Ethics, Universal Human Values, MOOCS programs also represent this restructured syllabus. This programme through the dissertation will also help the students to understand the basic principles of nature and will also provide scope for hands-on experience to experiment with nature /animals and thereby enable them to develop aptitude for research in various allied fields of animal sciences.
