BS Zoology


Zoology is the scientific study of the characteristics and classification of animals. Zoology is a vibrant and growing discipline with substantial relevance for modern society. Knowledge of animal’s biology contributes to the development strategies to reduce and cope with pollution, strive for renewable sources, deal with environmental changes, discover new biologically based solution to human/animal diseases and develop biopharmaceuticals. The study of Zoology is increasingly recognized as vital for understanding and protecting our planet.
