Science can be defined as a systematic study and investigation of natural phenomena and occurrences by way of observation, theoretical explanation as well as experimentation. A scientific study of any phenomena involves careful observation, formulation of hypotheses, conducting experiments to test and prove the hypotheses and henceforth drawing conclusions that confirm or deny the hypothetical assumption. Such scientific studies help in the formulation of universal laws that help humans to know more about the world we live in and how various natural processes and phenomena occur.
Science is a vast field and concerns almost everything that our eyes can see or cannot see. Everything in the universe can be studied under the field of science.
There was an incredible response received from the youth of the State of Arunachal Pradesh when the University conducted the first INSPIRE Programme for the candidates aspiring to pursue their career in the field of Science. At present the University is offering Bachelor of Science and Master of Science under the Faculty of Science. The science students have the advantage of gaining employment in Pharma sector, which is a high growth sector.
The students pursuing their academics in Science can opt various career options available in fields such as Defense, Para-military, Nursing, Teaching, Information Technology, Engineering, Medical Science, Bio-Informatics, Pharmacy etc.
Zoology as a distinct course of pursuit by any student at Arunachal University of Studies falls under the control and proper authority of the Faculty of Science. In definition, zoology is an extension of biology wherein the focus of everything directs toward the animal kingdom under the widest possible considerations at large. The most consequential aspects about the M.Sc. in Zoology has directed its basis upon classification, structure, evolution, natural behaviors and actions, embryology etc. Through the utilization of proper literature, as well as advanced options for performing research, it becomes evident that this field has a lot of opportunities for future zoologists. These professionals shall inherently work across a wide availability of opportunities to actually contribute toward the animal kingdom with both existing and extinct species under consideration.
The course specifically comprises of a duration that extends for two years, and the composition generally happens across the number of semesters totaling 4 in number. The students pursing the field shall inimitably receive learning opportunities across anatomy, physiology and other aspects wholly encapsulating biologic sphere of different animal groups and species at large. It shall also comprise of development fields like biochemistry, immunology, genetics and evolution, cell and molecular biology, molecular endocrinology, genomics, biostatics, ecological perspectives, entomology, as well as various practically applicative instances at large. Upon the completion of this course, the students could effectively answer and provide effective and accurate information across almost all kinds of occurrences with animals.
Graduation with Zoology or Allied Subject
Within the spectrum of academic opportunities, M.Sc. in Zoology opens opportunities along these specific courses and avenues. M.Phil. in Zoology, M. Phil. In Life Science, Ph.D. in Zoology etc. all formulate the highest degree of educational achievement should the student decided to act upon such an opportunity at large. The professional and occupational prospects encompass exploration, conservation, preservation and management across organizations and institutions, which focus their attention for the sake of benefiting the animal kingdom at large. Zoologists may also pursue independent research, or any other specific orientation for applying their skills and knowledge in order to manifest maximum benefits. Simply speaking, there’s no shortage of opportunities, as one would view that behaviorists, breeders and trainers, educators, caretakers, etc. all fall within the possible avenue for professions open for any M.Sc. in Zoology.
