M.Sc Zoology

Following the nerve of time, Desh Bhagat University has established its Department of Zoology as an interdisciplinary branch of the University School of Sciences to cover all the traditional & latest emerging theories and researches in Zoology focusing on animal behavior, structure, physiology, classification, and distribution. Being a standout amongst the various branches of Science, the M.Sc programme in Zoology is being preferred by students interested in the educational blend of life sciences & biology sciences. It also allures a wide gamut of science students due to its significant accentuation on practical and research methodologies. Having multifaceted congenial characteristics, the department of Zoology, here, at DBU appreciates essentially the top notoriety in zoology throughout the region and nation as well.

DBU has metamorphosed the pedagogy of the course as per the global norms and researches in the relevant industry so as to satisfy the fascination of the students in various comprehensive fields of animal biodiversity and genetics such as wildlife ecology and its indispensable diversity, evolution and behavior in the animal kingdom, their complex relationships with other organisms, their intriguing patterns of development and exploring a diverse array of animal species. The meticulous faculty of the department saturates world class knowledge and industrial brilliance through practical & theoretical activities, interactive sessions with renowned scholars & scientists and field studies. Apart from this, the department of Zoology has been enriched with fully equipped laboratories where the students get assisted in their experimental activities by highly experienced laboratory staff. All the specialized laboratories have been empowered with relevant equipments, chemical substances & instruments.

Vision of the Department: To create globally recognized competent scientists to work in multi oriented and challenging environment

Mission of the Department:

  1. To impart quality education, for enhancement of skills for progression in career and higher education according to their area of interest.
  2. To set up a student centered learning atmosphere and develop a research facility for graduate level to inculcate research attitude in students for innovations.
  3. To make collaboration with industries, distinguished research institution and to become a centre of excellence.
