All aspects of animal life, ranging from microscopic single-celled protozoa to vertebrates come under the realm of ZOOLOGY. Zoology is a conglomeration of several disciplines such as Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Entomology, Freshwater Biology, Fisheries, and Wildlife etc. Hence, it has become the home to a thriving community of researchers who are attracted to the science how whole organisms develop, function, behave, interact and evolve.

Department of Zoology still continues to be the primary choice for the students of Biological sciences.
