Zoology is one of the interdisciplinary subjects in Science. Besides revolving around behaviour and ecology, genetics, evolution, taxonomy, anatomy, physiology, developmental, cellular, reproductive biology, immunology and conservation of animals, the subject also encompasses the study of biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, microbiology etc. Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in zoology can build a successful career in the field of academics/research, medical technologies, forensic biology, nursing, wildlife biology, veterinary sciences, museum work, agricultural and environmental sciences, conservation biology and in applied branches of zoology like aquaculture, sericulture, apiculture, poultry and dairy industries. With the primary objective of providing quality education in this subject, Department of Zoology, Dr Kanailal Bhattacharyya College was established in 2008 with general course. In 2012, Zoology Honours course of study was introduced. Now one UGC approved full time teacher, four State Aided College teachers along with two supporting staffs are present in the Department. The Zoology laboratory is well equipped with several sets of instruments related to the curriculum. In every year, field studies are arranged in local area or different national park or sanctuaries or coastal areas according to the syllabus in both honours and general course of study. Students are motivated towards science by departmental seminars where eminent scientists deliver their lectures. Students also participate in departmental seminars, bird watching and environmental audit. Every year departmental wall magazine is published with the active participation of students and teachers. We feel proud of the achievements of our Honours students as many of them are scoring high 1st class in B.Sc. Zoology Honours in the present years. Many successful students have enrolled themselves in M.Sc courses and many have successfully secured jobs.
