WOMEN UNIVERSITY of Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Bagh

Introduction

The Department of Zoology, a discipline of basic sciences, meets the need of training persons in a vast basic and interdisciplinary framework concerning Animal Sciences. A Zoology graduate B.Sc. (Hons.) 4 years has a diverse experience and competence to serve or learn further in education, health, agriculture, and industry and environment sectors. Almost all disciplines of Zoological Sciences are represented and hence distinguish the Department of Zoology of this University from other universities in Pakistan. Syllabi are updated and audio visual aids are used to improve teaching. The main degree programs in the department include M.Sc., BS (4 years program), and M.Phil (2 years evening program),
