Department of Zoology

The Department of Zoology came into existence in November, 2000. It offers Honours and General Courses. The members of the faculty are dedicated towards the goal of achieving excellence in the fields of teaching and research. Various methods of teaching are implemented, ranging from the traditional classroom teaching method to the use of latest audio-visual modes of presentation. Students are encouraged to engage actively in scientific endeavours and the Department is especially devoted to fostering a spirit of enquiry and craving for new knowledge in the field of Zoological sciences. Regular and periodic evaluation of students’ performance and the necessary guidance provided to students are a primary feature of the Department. Special classes are arranged for students who have difficulty understanding concepts, at any point of their graduation, and students who have difficulty grasping with the nitty-gritty of the curriculum. The Department has a well-equipped laboratory and a well-stacked seminar library.   Special lectures, seminars and talks are arranged from time to time. Specialists and experts in the field are frequently invited to deliver lectures and interact with students. The Department also conducts educational excursions and fieldwork which constitute a segment of the curriculum, and which give the students a better and first-hand understanding of the country’s bio-diversity. The teachers of the Department meet the guardians/parents on a periodic basis to discuss the performance, potentialities and shortcomings of the students. Students are given the opportunity to display their intellectual acumen in the wall magazine brought out by the Department. The students of the Department actively participate in programmes such as green plantation programmes, blood donation camps, science exhibitions, etc.
