About the Programme
Course Overview

M.Sc. Zoology is a 2-year postgraduate program. Fundamental, advanced and applied topics such as genetics and epigenetics, immunology, physiology, cell and molecular biology, aquaculture, etc., are included so as to enable students in realizing the importance of this course and its utility towards the society. In recent years, the study of both fundamental and applied Zoology has induced a keen interest among students, researchers and animal science-based industries. This subject has been able to grab the attention of the academic world and have motivated scientists to work towards biodiversity conservation, formulating ecological safeguards and to apply Biotechnology & Bioinformatics to the field of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical sciences. The knowledge of animal forms and their physiological function opens the gateway to applications in a number of exciting and innovative fields. As a subject, it creates enormous interest in us as we are also part of the animal kingdom. Appreciating the development and evolution of animals help us to explore ourselves better. In this stream, students explore at a deeper level about how animals are integral component of the ecosystem. All the subjects are integrated with practice sessions and project components, so as to provide an excellent opportunity for students to gain hands-on training experience. Students are also entitled to opt for domain topics such as aquaculture, genetics and genomics, nutraceuticals, dairy farming, animal cell culture, etc, essentially with an interdisciplinary approach to expose students to various society-based problems and eventually carry out experiments aimed towards product or process-based outcomes.
