Special Features


One of the special features of our department is excellent teacher –student relationship. Responsive nature of our teachers makes our students competent to interact with them without hesitation. Within class room and outside the class room, this relationship enhances their academic and other development.
In addition to this, two well-equipped laboratories with both modern and traditional facilities strengthen our department. These laboratory instruments assist students in understanding practical issues and as well as in theories.
One seminar library enriched with 170 books of both Indian and foreign publishers give the students opportunity to flourish their knowledge.
One museum with more than 300 biological specimens (macroscopic and microscopic) including non-chordates, chordates, skeletons, bones of different animals and histological slides is an asset of our department. These collections enhance the knowledge and better understanding of students.
Above all, involvement of students in extra-curricular activities is another specialty of this department. Among all departments our department pioneered the publication of wall magazine- “Pearl Oyster” in 2004. Till that, 11 editions of “Pearl Oyster” have been published.
