DEPARTMENT AT A GLANCE

History

Hindustani Education Society’s AZAD MAHAVIDYALAYA, AUSA Dist. Latur was established in the year 1991 and in the same year the department of Zoology came into existence. The department has faced many challenges like student strength; infrastructure etc. in the beginning but it has emerged victorious during all these 29 years after establishment. Today the department has achieved many feats since its inception. It has now experienced and very well-versed faculties, who are hardworking and dedicated towards achieving newer horizons in the field of education and research. This department offers Zoology subject for B.Sc. Part – I, II, III classes. The department offers UG programs. So far maximum number of students has completed their B.Sc. degree offering Zoology at graduation level in the college.

Undergraduate Zoology 

Zoology is concerned with the most basic principles that underlie all phenomena in the universe. Physicists ask, “How does the world work?” They search for the most elementary particles; they seek understanding of the behavior of collections of particles ranging from quarks in nuclei and electrons in atoms to stars in galaxies; they strive for insights into the nature of space and time, and they explore the behavior of matter and energy. On a more human scale, physicists study an enormous range of topics including all the devices of modern electronics, complex biological molecules, the atmosphere, and all forms of energy and its uses. Studying Zoology prepares some students to push back the boundaries of knowledge in this most fundamental of the natural sciences. For others it provides training in the concepts and methods of science for application in many professional areas, and for many it gives a more substantial basis for understanding many aspects of modern society.

The professional Education of the student’s beings while enrolling their names to the B.Sc. classes. The board of study thought authentically that some sort of Job oriented syllabi is to be included and accordingly the syllabus is framed

 

Head of the department Dr. A. V. Pathan himself is a very experienced and has keen interest in the research and educational innovations. He is interested in literature also. He has published 25 research papers through journals of national and international repute with good impact factors. Another faculty Dr. Shinde A. R. has a very sound academic background.
