Zoology Department 


The Department of Zoology is one of the first departments to be established by the Savitribai Phule Pune University in 1950. Situated on an exceptionally beautiful and picturesque campus of the University of Pune, the Department of Zoology offers postgraduate courses leading to M. Sc., M. Phil. and Ph.D. degrees.

During the last 60 years, the department has made its identity in the frontier areas of Life Sciences and now it has developed into a full- fledged centre of teaching and research in modern biology. The effort of the department in establishing unique and innovative teaching and training programmes led to its recognition as Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) in by the University Grants Commission (UGC) since 2005.

Department of Zoology has received funds from the UGC under Committee on Strengthening of Infrastructure for Science and Technology (COSIST). The department has also received funds from DST-Government of India under the FIST programme.
