Master of Science in Zoology

Master of Science in Zoology or MSc in Zoology is a postgraduate programme which deals with the branch of biology which relates to the animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification of animals, their habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct. It is a two-year programme, divided into four semesters in which the student research a species as a whole or analyze individual organisms. The field also teaches students about how animals interact with each other and adapt to their environments.

Humans believe in their ecosystem and put in a lot of effort to make it more sustainable and efficient. Here’s where the zoology degree course comes into effect. Zoology focuses on both the terrestrial and aquatic life of the animals. Topics that zoology degree cover are anatomy, biology, ecology genetics, animal behavior, and evolution. Under zoology degree one covers the course study of their physical characteristics, diets, behaviors, and the impacts humans have on them. The course covers the study of all kinds of animals, both in their natural habitats and in captivity in zoos and aquariums. One can specialize in studying a particular animal or animal group according to one’s choice.

The following quote defines concisely the purpose of the Zoology degree
