The School of Biological Sciences will offer an Under graduate /Post-Graduate (integrated five years’ masters) programme from the academic session 2021-22. The curriculum of the integrated M. Sc. programme is based upon UGC’s choice-based credit system (CBCS) and provides an in-depth study of the subject and the related areas. The foundation of the subject is built through Core courses coupled with a choice-based specialization of different streams of modern biology with an interdisciplinary perspective through Elective courses. Core courses are rigorous in-depth courses that build on the foundation and develop critical thinking and problemsolving skills. Since the subjects involve a lot of experimental work, therefore, substantial laboratory work is an integral part of almost all types of courses. All students have to undertake a research project under the guidance of highly qualified faculties and the outcome of the research will be reported in the form of a dissertation. Students will be encouraged to take up summer projects and visit institutes and universities of national repute such as IITs, NIT, IISER, CSIR Labs during the 5-year course.
