Department of Zoology




Department of Zoology was established in the Year 1988.

Aims and Objectives:
• To develop and improve Students understanding of the Diversity of animal life and economic values of animals to mankind.
• To know Zoo-geological Realms of World To understand animals as Pollution Indicators
• To visit to Wild life sanctuaries, National parks, Zoological gardens and Aquatic zones to study biodiversity of animal life.

Stratergies:
• Arranging the Guest lecturers from different places.
• Visiting Sanctuaries and National parks to study diversity of animal life.
The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, skills, qualities and other attributes in the following areas:
