Introduction Biology is a comprehensive centre of cutting edge research and teaching in the universities, as it serves as the cornerstone for Biological and Medical Sciences. It equips and furnishes the students with information on life sciences and thereby prepares them for the challenges of lives in their various disciplines. In addition, the research and strong commitment to excellence in teaching provide a broad, rigorous and innovative curriculum to students in the department. In order to make the graduates global leaders, the department collaborates with other departments and colleges across the campus including department of chemical sciences, department of Physics, department of Geology, department of Mathematics and College of Information and Computer Technology. The students are advised to be conversant with the Salem University Handbook for Transformation Academic Revolution (TAR). The major concern of the department is to strike a balance between academics and moral standard, and also to release our global leaders as global transformer to their generation. Relevance of Biology Biology has vast areas of application which include Bioinformation, Biotechnology, Botany, Ecology, Endocrinology, Entomology, Ethology, Food Science, Forensic Science, Genetic Counselling, Herpetology, Ichthyology, Immunology, Biometry, Mycology, Nematology, Ornithology, Parasitology, Zoology and many others. As a result of this graduates of Biology have a wide range of employment opportunities.
