4INTRODUCTION :Zoology is the branch of Natural Science that deals with animal biology and is concernedwith every level of biological organization i.e., from gene to the ecosystem and with thestructure, evolution, physiology, behavior, entomology, genetics, development anddistribution of animals in all taxonomic groups. Zoology department at Lahore College forWomen was established in 1956. Dr. Nazir Ahmed was the first head of the Department ofZoology. Lahore College for Women was elevated to the status of a Women University inSeptember 2002. Zoology Department at Lahore College for Women University includeseight concentration areas: 1) General Zoology, 2(Cell and Molecular Biology, 3) Entomologyand Parasitology, 4) Genetics, 5) Physiology and Endocrinology, 6) Microbiology 7)Biodiversity and Conservation and Fisheries and Aquaculture.The syllabi are duly upgraded and modernized to make them abreast with the Internationalstandards. Currently department enrolls students for 4 years Bachelor’s degree (BS Zoology),2years MS degree (MS Zoology) and Ph.D. program.Mission of the DepartmentThe overarching aim of post graduate degree programs in Zoology is to train and preparescholars who bare capable of productive careers in animal biology in teaching and research atnational and international levels, develop human resource in recently emerging technologicaland disciplinary fields such as Genetic engineering, Bioinformatics, Endocrinology,Microbiology, Entomology, Biodiversity, Wildlife and Conservations etc. Our aims andobjectives are: To impart knowledge about the advances in major disciplines of Zoology. To teach different methods of exploration, investigation, organization of data and itsutilization in practical life. To equip students with the knowledge and skills for better planning and managementof animal resources, environment, health, medicine, agriculture and livestock in thecountry. To prepare and train students for advanced studies and specialization in recentlyemerging technological and interdisciplinary fields such as Genetic engineering,Endocrinology, Entomology & parasitology, Biochemistry, Microbiology,Biodiversity, Wildlife and Conservation etc. After completing the degree students willbe able to apply knowledge to the respective fields more effectively. To develop the scientific attitude and demonstrate professional skills in teachingresearch and managerial positions in wide range of professions in national andinternational organizations.The core values of the department are: Quality Honesty and Character building Value Addition Hard work Care Esteem Assurance Accountability Impartiality Transparency Conviction

5 Team spiritTeaching Methodologies:All courses taught are excellent mix-match of various methods including lectures, practicals,seminars, assignment, workshops, tutorials, and group discussions using audio-visual aids.The teaching culminates in developing the ability in students to collect, recognize andinterpret the information through various sources like library and internet. This createsoriginality amongst students enabling them to work with gravity of purpose with sharplearning skills.CRITERION 1: PROGRAM MISSION, OBJECTIVES AND OUTCOMESProgram Mission of Zoology Department:Mission of the graduate program is to achieve excellence through provision of quality animalbiology training and services to develop productive skills for Zoology professionals/ researchscholars to handle multifarious challenging needs.Standard 1-1: The program must have documented measurable objectives that supportcollege and institution mission statements.Name of ProgramBS ZoologyDuration4 yearsNo. of ModulesTotal Credit hrs8 Semesters (Course 136work Research)1.1: Program’s Objectives:1.1.1 BS Zoology (4 years degree program):Curriculum for the degree consists of HEC approved courses. In year 1 and 2 thestudents learn the basic, foundation and compulsory courses according to theweightage given by the HEC. These courses include i) Compulsory courses, ii) CoreCourses from Zoology, iii) Supporting Minor Courses from Botany and Chemistryand iv) Elective Courses e.g., Statistics, Psychology etc. In the final years the studentsstudy the advanced courses and work bon research projects (Annexure I). BS Zoology Program Objectives:1.To impart knowledge about animal sciences through wide range of subjects related tonatural sciences.

62.To teach different methods of exploration, investigation, organization of data and itsutilization in practical life with reference to animal biology.3.To enable students to acquire knowledge base facts about biological diversity ofanimals including analysis at the level of genes, cells, tissues, organs, individuals,interactions od individuals, populations and ecosystems and skills for better planning,protection and management of resources, environment, health, agriculture andlivestock in the country.4.To prepare and train students for advanced studies and specialization in recentlyemerging technological and interdisciplinary field such as Biodiversity, Wildlife andConservation, Molecular Biology, Entomology & Parasitology, Genetics,Endocrinology and Physiology. After completing the degree, students will be able toapply knowledge to the respective fields and would go for consideration of larger roleof biology in society.1.1.2 Strategies are based on:i)Designing the program as per requirement of studentsii)Develop curriculum according to the need of the program.iii)Regular revision of curriculum to keep them abreast with national and internationaldevelopments.iv)Providing all resources including class room facilities, multimedia, computers andproperly equipped laboratories.v)Updating the knowledge of teachers through workshops and training the establishment of linkages at national and international level.vii)Establish liaison with the potential employers and provide economical consultancyservices.viii)Develop moral basis of the students to impart concept of teams, honesty anddiscipline through ethical attitudes.1.1.3 Assessment of Educational Objectives of Program:Research degrees are assessed by completion of an advanced research project. Taughtcourses are assessed through a combination of coursework and projects related to thestudy. The educational objectives of program are regularly assessed as indicated in theTable below:

What is Zoology? Welcome to zoology! Did you know that you’ve actually done zoology before? When you examined an insect or watched a squirrel in your yard, you were, in fact, doing zoology, because zoology is the study of the animals that God made. All animals are included in zoology, even fleas, ants, and spiders.
