DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY UNIVERSITY OF PESHAWAR OBJECTIVES: Teaching, Research, Consultancy and Community Service MISSION: The Department of Zoology is committed to the production of well-rounded international standard graduates of, M. Sc., M. Phil and Ph. D level in areas of Zoology including Entomology, Parasitology, Fisheries, Microbiology and Biotechnology maintaining high level of integrity and responsibility at individual and departmental level; and conducting quality research, and producing well trained teachers and to participate in community development projects. VISION: To act as a leader of excellence and performance in its objectives in the country GOAL: To study, know, love and to serve the entire creation of the Creator Program Objectives: 1. To provide graduates who are familiar with basic and an advance level of Zoology and its various disciplines, which are exploited, in many fields of life 2. To provide theoretical and practical knowledge of various zoological aspects, their knowledge, which are required for professional activities in the field. 3. The graduates who are able to manipulate and utilize their training correctly and grasp a realistic approach to the conservation of animals as well as their habitats. 4. To prepare graduates with the skills and knowledge of all aspects of life. 5. To produce graduates with the skills to critically analyze samples of environmental and biological importance. 6. The graduate should be able to use the skills of analytical biological information in selecting and executing the appropriate biological analysis techniques in various fields of zoology.


Program Outcomes: After completion of M. S. One year program, the graduate will 1. Have an overall knowledge of Zoology and its various disciplines. 2. Have sufficient idea for those biological methods, which are vital both in other courses as well as in any employment undertaking in the science. 3. Be able to use data interpretation in every aspect of future study of life science. 4. Have sufficient knowledge of the techniques studied, which are applicable in biological sciences. 5. Have necessary knowledge with all stages in the entire framework of environmental investigation and monitoring. 6. Be able to use the skills of biological instrumentations and laboratory techniques in the biological science. Section Mission: To promote the mission of the department and the promotion of various disciplines of Zoology in all of its aspects; like teaching, research and the organization of symposia/workshop on topics of interest to Zoologist/ Biologists; the development of activities which will promote the growth of Zoology; and the establishment of means for increasing the processional status and contacts between Zoologists. Section Vision: Their scientific thinking, skills, innovation and problem solving should recognize our graduate. Zoology old name with modern usage Zoology continues to be one of the most important scientific fields in the modern era. However, while there is a fundamental core to biological science, the rapid advances being made in many specific areas have led to a wide variety of different specialisations that can be studied in their own right. In the Department, we teach a broad range of biological science courses. Accordingly, we have designed this degree programme to be as flexible as possible, giving you the opportunity to explore main-interest subjects and allowing you to develop new interests and, if you wish, specialisations as you progress through the degree. At the end of two and half years, graduates have received a sound biological training, completed at least one major research project, and possibly developed a firm career direction as a result of specialised studies. For example, specialising in Parasitology will provide unrivalled training in both temperate and tropical diseases, enabling graduates to follow a career at home or overseas. Studying Ecology will interest those who wish to understand biodiversity and how organisms interact with each other and the environment. A wide range of courses from behavioural ecology to environmental impact assessment provides an excellent basis for a career in conservation or environmental management. Fisheries are another major strength. Students who wish to keep all options open and study a broad spectrum of subjects take the wider area of Biology itself. The breadth of courses available, coupled with a final year research project, ensures that you will be able to apply for a wide range of career openings with confidence. 3

Careers Microbiologists, Parasitologist, Entomologist and biotechnologists obtain employment in a variety of scientific, medical and veterinary laboratories and in the food, brewing, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. We expect that our graduates will play leading roles in the further development of biotechnology industries, which have enormous scope for the production of food, fuel, chemicals, health care products and diagnostic aids, and for recycling waste in a useful form. Successful graduation with a degree in Modern Zoology will open doors to a wide range of careers, for example: (i) pure and applied research in universities, government departments or industry, (ii) biomedically-oriented careers in Parasitology and molecular pharmacology, (iii) conservation and environmentally-related opportunities in pollution control and agriculture, (iv) postgraduate nursing, (v) education, including teaching at all levels and the development of materials in education, or (vi) scientific journalism, reporting and programme making within today's extensive media. Some students use their degrees as a basic training in scientific thought and method, and later enter careers not directly related to their field of study, such as accountancy, computing, personnel management, local government, business management, the forces, secretarial or library work.
