M.Sc. Zoology

Program Learning Outcomes
Post Graduate program in Zoology deals with the study of Animal Kingdom and the associated areas such as Systematics habits, habitat and Geographical distribution of all the animals; their structure, the evolutionary trend in the structure and function of various life processes.Theprogram also provides study of  advanced areas in zoology that includes biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genes and differentiation, Immunology, computer applications in Zoology, biostatistics to name a few. This course is offered for candidates who are interested in the study of animals with greater insight into the subject. The minimum time required to complete the course is two years.
By the end of this course, the students will be able to:
PLO1 Develop a conceptual understanding of principles and importance of Zoology. They will gain knowledge deep up to the molecular level.. The curriculum is so designed that the students can face the competitive exams like ICS, RAS, NET, SET etc.
PLO2 Develop deeper understanding of key concepts of Zoology at biochemical, molecular andcellular level, physiology and reproduction at organismal level, and ecological impact on animalbehaviour.
PLO3 Elucidation of gene differentiation during embryonic development.
PLO4 Strengthening of genetics and cytogenetics principle in light of advancements in understandinghuman genome and genomes of other model organisms and manipulate the same in the benefit of the mankind.
PLO5 Learning handling DNA sequence data and its analysis which equip students to get employed inR&D in the industry involved in DNA sequencing services, diagnostics, and microbiome analysis.
PLO6 Understand the ultrastructure and function of cell membranes, cell communications, signaling multi functionality of cells. 
PLO7 Understand the issues of environmental contexts and sustainable development, conserving biodiversity and natural resources. 
PLO8 Perform procedures as per laboratory standards in the areas of Biochemistry, Anatomy, Bioinformatics, Taxonomy, Ethology, Cell Biology, Reproduction and Ecology. This hands on training will help themto use the techniques in multidisciplinary way and design experiments, analyze and interpret data to reach to an effective conclusion. 
PLO9 Carry out innovative research projects through best problem-solving skills thereby making them to use knowledge in depth. 
PLO10 Project, Seminar and Dissertations will build up research aptitude among the students With this the students will be trained to handle research andanalyze it.
