The courses offered by Department are affiliated to Himachal Pradesh University Shimla (HP). Zoology comprises the study of animals, their economic importance and behaviours. The subject helps in acquiring a great insight into animal behaviour, the way they live, their needs, and many more things. Zoology deals with the environment of the animals, how they adapt to the changing environment and their needs like nutrition, genetics, characteristics, evolution, physiology, reproduction, development etc. The subjects also include the study of modern techniques like biotechnology, immunology, biochemistry etc. for an in-depth understanding of the zoological world. With the imbalance in the ecosystem today, the acute need has been felt to preserve nature and even animals that are on the brink of extinction.
