Master of Science in Zoology

Master of Science (Zoology) is the branch branch of biology which relates to the animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct. M.Sc in Zoology is a two year program and is divided into four semesters. M.Sc. Zoology degree at BFIT is affiliated to HNB Garhwal Central University.

After completion of the B.Sc program, one can opt for M.Sc Zoology course, which opens up wide scope of securing a rewarding career. Zoology focuses on the lives of animals, including both terrestrial and aquatic life. Zoologists can research a species as a whole or analyze individual organisms. The field also looks at how animals interact with each other and adapt to their environments. Topics in zoology include anatomy, genetics, animal behavior, biology, ecology and evolution. Zoologists study animals and their interactions with ecosystems. They study their physical characteristics, diets, behaviors, and the impacts humans have on them. They study all kinds of animals, both in their natural habitats and in captivity in zoos and aquariums. They may specialize in studying a particular animal or animal group.

Zoologists may be involved in a wide variety of duties in various environments. For example they may observe and study animals in their natural environments, or plan and conduct experiments involving animals in nature, in zoos, or in other controlled areas. They may also collect biological specimens and measure physical characteristics. These studies are generally aimed at investigating animal behavior, migration, interactions with other species, and reproduction, as well as the pests, diseases, toxins, and habitat changes that affect them. They use the information they gather to monitor and estimate populations, address invasive species and other threats, control disease, manage hunting programs, and develop conservation plans. They also write reports and journal articles and give presentations to share their findings.

Subjects usually studied under this degree are Structure & Functions of Invertebrates, Quantitative Biology, Bioinformatics, Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics, Animal Physiology, Bio molecules, Structural Biology, Environmental Physiology, Bio systematic, Taxonomy & Evolution, Genes & Differentiation, Animal Behavior, Endocrinology etc.

+ Additional Value Added Certification

Wild Life science Training, Forensic Entomology, Zookeeper, Animal Health care, Animal behavior and psychology, Neurobiology.
