St. Michael’s College established in 1967 as a junior college marked a pronounced shift in its educational responsibility by introducing the first degree department in 1976.  As the pioneering department, the Department of Zoology under the eminent Head of the Department, Prof. K.V. Ummachan bated its way through hurdles to become a model for the departments to come. Besides inculcating the treasured human values and discipline it takes upon itself the cardinal responsibility of transforming a student of zoology into nature-lover. With the built up area of 4000 sq. feet the department has arranged state-of-the-art facilities for the study of zoology including a Museum with invaluable specimen, exotic collection of zoological curiosities and a Physiological Lab fully equipped to meet the needs of the students. Establishing an intimate relationship with the society around the department engages in out-reach activities and service for the development of the society and the dissemination of knowledge. Offering B.Sc. Degree course in Zoology and an array of services, it opens before young students immense scope of moving into the stunning domains of environment biology, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics.
