ABOUT US

HOD’S DESK


Associate Professor
Mrs.P.ANANTHI

The Department of Zoology had its inception in the year 1957.  prior to which it was the Natural Science Department that offered Botany and Zoology course for the intermediate degree. After blossoming into a separate department with B.Sc. Zoology as major and allied with Botany and Chemistry, there upon the Department moved towards a steady progress. From this humble beginning the Department has grown into a glorious edifice. The Department was upgraded into a Post Graduate Department in year 1984 and Research Department in 1989 with the introduction of M.Phil and Ph.D. Programme. We are the pioneer in producing maximum number of women doctorates. It is a prestigious Department providing its potential among other institutions. This Department has uncompromising discipline and flawless execution of academic policies that makes the teaching learning environment conducive for each and every student to fulfil their dream.
