Course Overview

M.Sc.(Zoology) or Master of Science in Zoology is a postgraduate Zoology course. Zoology is also common, occasionally also spelt (zoology), is the branch of biology which relates to the animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct. The duration of M.Sc. in Zoology is mostly of two academic years but it varies from institute to institute. The Guru Nanak Dev University, Amrtisar is providing in two years.
