Department of Zoology

Brief Introduction of the Department

The Department of Zoology, Diamond Harbour Women’s University, is one of the newest departments of the University and was formed in 2017. At present, 96% of the total intake capacity has been fulfilled which is quite a promising sign for a department which is yet to have its fulltime faculty. At present the department is being run by guest teachers, who are doing their best for the overall development of the department. All of the students of the first batch have secured first class in the university semester examinations.

Despite being new, the Department of Zoology is still coming up with various academic and other activities for the overall betterment of the students. Of late, the Department has organized a special lecture by Prof. J. R. B. Alfred, Former Director, The Zoological Survey of India, on biodiversity and conservation. The Department has also arranged numerous field visits.
