Department of Zoology was established in the year 1973. The strategic planning of the senior faculty members, sincerity and dedication has evolved the department into a very well established department with state of the art facilities, gaining applauds and appreciations from the Bangalore University. To popularize science education among students, the department conducts seminars/lectures by eminent scientists, field visits and industrial visits. 

Zoology serves as a valuable foundation for many students in understanding human physiology, anatomy, genetics, embryology and pathology. A sound knowledge of basic science is very important and critical to explore biological processes which govern the very existence of life.

Concepts of zoology help the students to understand the importance of biodiversity, conservation & management of wild life and mitigating the problems related to extinction of species.

The economic growth in many parts of the world has been achieved by keenly studying the behavioural aspects of animals which are of economic importance.
