The Department of Life Sciences offers Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Medical, a three year undergraduate degree program. The course is considered as a foundation course for students who want to make their career in the field of Biological Sciences.
Established in the year 1967, with the aim to foster value based quality education in the fields of Animal and Plant biology and Environmental sciences, the Department has well equipped laboratories with projectors, classrooms, departmental library and research facilities supported by Central Instrumentation Lab. The Department also has Museum collection housing floral and faunal specimens, Herbarium, Insect collection, rare collection of fossils and corals and preserved specimen of all the major plant taxa. The Department maintains the well-stocked Botanical Garden which serves as the repository of the source material for botanical studies.
Faculty is highly qualified with research interests in varied fields of Animal and Plant Taxonomy, Cytogenetics, Molecular Biology, Medical and Forensic Entomology, Physiology, Parasitology and is well versed with novel teaching methods. In addition to teaching through modern techniques; Seminars, symposia, Workshops and Extension lectures are an integral part of the academic programme of the department. Regular excursions are organized to Instrumentation labs, Botanical Gardens, Wetlands and various National parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries to provide hands on training and experience to the students.
Under the aegis of the Department, the Biological Society organizes co-curricular activities like special lectures, Quiz, Poster making, Scientific paper reading, Essay writing competitions on International and National days of importance (Science Day, Ozone day, World Biodiversity Day, Environment day etc.), which act as a springboard for creating awareness regarding these campaigns. Inter Institutional Science Fair is an annual event organized by the Department along with other Science departments to promote critical thinking regarding global issues among the students and encourage them to use design and creativity to showcase their scientific and technological skills.
