COURSE DESCRIPTION


B.Sc. (Hons.) Zoology or Bachelor of Science Honours in Zoology is an undergraduate Zoology course. Zoology is a comprehensive study of animals and their biological processes, the links between them and their environment and key aspects of zoological phenomena from molecular to ecological levels. It focuses on the structure, function, behaviour, and evolution of animals. Students also study the origin and development of species, their habits, behaviours and interactions. B.Sc. (Hons.) (Zoology) degree course also includes the study of morphology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, embryology, cell and molecular biology, gnemonics, biotechnology, genetics evolution and ecology. In simpler words, B.Sc. (Hons.) (Zoology) degree course is the comprehensive and detailed study of animal sciences. The duration of the course is three years and the course is an important one that opens a lot career scopes for the candidates after its successful completion. There are many colleges/universities which are offering the course in their campuses.

  • The basic eligibility criterion for pursuing B.Sc. (Hons.) (Zoology) degree is qualifying 10+2 or equivalent examination in Science stream with a minimum of 50% marks secured in Biology subject and/or in aggregate from a recognized board of the country.
  • Also, some reputed colleges and institutes also conduct entrance examination to get admission to their B.Sc. (Hons.) Zoology degree course. Selection to the degree course in these colleges is based on marks secured in the final merit i.e. total marks aggregated in the final exams of 10+2 and the entrance exam.

How is B.Sc. (Hons.) Zoology Course Beneficial?

  • B.Sc. (Hons.) (Botany) degree serves as a basis for further higher studies in this field such as M.Sc., Ph.D. and M.Phil. degree in Zoology as well as in Life-Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Toxicology, Genetics and Microbiology, Agricultural entamology, Pharmaceuticals Sciences, Forestry and Wildlife, etc, the successful completion of which makes one eligible for the post of a lecturer in any university/college.
  • B.Sc. (Hons.) (Zoology) degree can lead to a variety of career paths and research opportunities in the field of natural sciences and animal studies. Channels like National Geographic, Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel provide an ample opportunity for the zoologists.
  • Wildlife parks, zoos and resorts are also other major source of employment for zoology graduates.
  • Also, there are post graduate courses available in Marine Zoology and Oceanography to the Zoology graduates.
