The prestigious department of Zoology was established in 1961 at U.G. level under Agra University Agra . Later on P.G. classes were started from 1963. Since then the department has been serving in an auspicious semi urban region and imparting quality education in the field of zoology. Research activities are also going on in the department in different areas viz- fish and fisheries, entomology, parasitology and limnology etc. We have an enriched list of alumni also.


The department of zoology, J.V. College Baraut is lodged in a magnificent building which spreads over 920 m2. The double storey building of the department has one laboratory for the undergraduate and two laboratories for the post graduate students. The department has its own departmental library with over 1000 books and a reading room for the post graduate students and faculty members. The department has a well equipped research laboratory where several faculty members and research scholars are engaged in basic and advanced research and are enriching the knowledge stock of life sciences in this rural belt of western Uttar Pradesh. The department has a separate room for the head of the department and a staff room for the faculty members. The department has a lecture room, a well furnished museum with rare specimens and models. The faculty members and research scholars are engaged in collecting and preserving the rare fauna. The department has a store room, a sitting chamber for lab assistant, separate toilets for boys, girls and faculty members. In order to augment the academic excellence among the faculty members, the department has two computers with internet facility, an LCD projector, three overhead projectors and one slide projector, one projection microscope and three research microscopes. We have a long list of instruments from the ancient string microtome to modern advanced microtome, several ovens, one BOD incubator, two centrifuges, and a variety of glassware from distilled water apparatus to advanced TLC apparatuses. The laboratories are full of the chemicals required in the course practical and research purposes. The department has full potential to enter and excel in any advanced research field of zoology.
