Department of Zoology

Zoology, the branch of biological science that deals with study of the animal kingdom, has captured the interest of human race since time immemorial. The field saw its genesis through the works of great scientists like Aristotle and Galen, and since then it has gained tremendous momentum in exploring various aspects of the animal kingdom. Under the domain of Zoology, we are now capable of understanding evolution, taxonomy & systematics, morphology, physiology, biochemical & molecular aspects, genetic basis, embryo development and many more aspects of the animal world. Zoology has a huge potential in the field of research. At present, many significant discoveries are coming from the research being carried out in this field that is directly related to the benefit of human and animal husbandry. The future scope is not only limited to research but extends to various other professional roles such as jobs in academic institutions, pharmaceutical industry, pathological testing laboratories, forest and animal conservation organizations, government and non-government departments related to agriculture & animal husbandry, etc. The young and growing mind of an undergraduate student should be nurtured graciously and cautiously. It is the best stage of one’s life to develop a viewpoint about oneself and the surroundings. Taking this into consideration, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences introduced B.Sc. (Hons.) Zoology in the academic session of 2017-18 to provide an opportunity to the undergraduate students to understand the biological life within and around them. The curriculum of this course provides comprehensive theoretical as well as practical knowledge of Zoology. Several core papers are taught during the three-year span of this course such as Non-Chordates, Chordates, Cell Biology, Ecology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, etc. Discipline-specific papers such as Biotechnology, Endocrinology, Animal Behavior & Chronobiology, Immunology, etc. are also offered to have in-depth knowledge about these topics. The curriculum also focuses on enhancing the skill of undergraduate students by offering skill-enhancement papers (Sericulture, Apiculture, Fisheries, etc.) so that they may have a future as entrepreneurs or may join skill-based industries. Since its genesis in 2017, the Department of Zoology has diligently worked to deliver the knowledge of Zoology to its students in best possible way. The Department also encourages its students to join research projects and summer internship programs. The curriculum of B.Sc. (H) Zoology aims to provide out-of-classroom knowledge of the subject. The Department executes this by conducting trips to Zoological parks, research organizations, and Institutes related to sericulture, apiculture, etc. The Department is also actively involved in organizing workshops and seminars to provide practical experience and extra-curricular knowledge to its students. The infrastructure of Department of Zoology is at par with any other biological science institute. The Department has two well-equipped laboratories with projector facility and high- end scientific instruments for conducting practicals and research such as Binocular and Trinocular microscopes, B.O.D. incubator, PC-based UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Refrigerated centrifuge, Deep Freezer, Digital blood cell counter, Digital haemoglobin reader, Digital blood analyzer, pH-meter, Electronic balance, Vortex shaker, Electrophoresis chamber, UV trans-illuminator, Ice Flaking machine, Glucometer etc. Also, a tissue-culture laboratory is present that is furnished will all the essential equipments like Laminar Flow, Orbital Shaker, Growth chamber, etc.
