Description

The primary objective of this programme is to provide the highest quality post-graduate education in Zoology.The advantage of space, time and pace inherent in the proposed programme addresses the desire and demand of a large number of our own students of the B.Sc. Programme who have been anxiously waiting for such a step on the part of IGNOU.The programme would help a large number of in-service people to upgrade their Degrees for mobility in their career path. It includes thousands of the TGTs/PGTs in the Schools spread across the country. The Zoology (M.Sc.) programme will benefit NET/GATE/Public Service Examinations aspirants. They would have various employment options in agriculture, health, education, and the environment.

The courses of this program are meticulously designed by experts across the country to provide the learners with a thorough understanding of fundamental concepts in core areas of Zoology, such as Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics and Animal Biotechnology, Comparative Animal Physiology and Biochemistry, Systematics, Biodiversity and Evolution, Genomics and Proteomics, Immunology, and so on. Adequate Zoology experiments and laboratory techniques to strengthen the learning abilities of students are provided in a structural manner. Students can also formulate scientific questions, exchange scientific ideas with colleagues, analyse, troubleshoot, and summarize the research data. Our special elective courses, including Parasitology, Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare Ethics, Aquaculture, Insect Taxonomy and Morphology, Insect Physiology and Toxicology, and Applied Entomology, are aimed at introducing you to current developments in these exciting areas of Zoology, as well as the interdisciplinary nature of science in modern times and the vast scope of its applications.

 

Special Features of MSc Zoology Program:

  1. MSc Zoology is being offered with specialization in Entomology.
