The zoology department holds a rich collection of text and reference books in the departmental seminar library.
Being students of natural science, students of department of zoology must have an exposure to the nature. For the partial fulfilment of their curriculum regular field visits are organised from the department. This field exposure help the students to understand the subject more easily as they visualise the written theories in real world. Moreover, these educational tours teach them how to work as team and to overcome difficulties by their own. Generally one long and several local excursions cover ecologically important places in and around the state.
Regular educational tours are organized by the department for partial fulfillment of the
student’s curriculum and for better understanding of their theoretical knowledge.
Studying hard is important to gain some knowledge. It is equally important to know how to express or to represent the knowledge we have. Students are regularly asked to present oral presentation or posters about subjects within their curriculum. It is said that " Teaching makes you learn better"; So, through the seminar the students gain confidence about the subject and most importantly about presenting something in front of a scientific audience, which help them in long run.
