The Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Rajshahi offers the learners to study for BSc, MS, MPhil and PhD degrees in biological disciplines. The Faculty endows its students with a rich scientific background, aspires to challenge them, sparks their imagination, and cultivates their intellectual and cultural evolvement so that they can go on to become socially conscience, responsible professionals as teachers, scientists, and researchers.

The Faculty consists of six departments offering education and research mainly in the fields of Psychology, Botany, Zoology, Genetics & Biotechnology, Clinical Psychology, and Microbiology. The Faculty displays a deep commitment to excellence consisting of a vibrant intellectual community of 150 faculty members.

Biological science is the study of living organisms either plants or animals including human beings. It is the heart of Faculty’s curriculum that focuses on the research of various mechanisms and activities vital to our life dealing with, among others, the survival capabilities of humankind and of all other living organisms on earth. As a result, Biological science is at the forefront of scientific research, and is considered as one of the key tools in assisting humankind to cope with challenges never faced before. The Faculty of Biological Sciences, therefore, attracts the most ambitious and inquisitive applicants, thus widening a rich realm of possibilities for education, research and career for them.

The Faculty has so far produced a number of qualified specialists who are currently contributing their acquired knowledges to their respective professions. To date, the faculty members and the students have presented and published a good number of scientific papers in national and international conferences, seminars and journals. In addition, they also have published a number of text books.

The Faculty regularly receives research grants from the University of Rajshahi, University Grants Commission (UGC), and the Ministry of Science & Technology, Bangladesh. These grants are utilized in carrying out quality education and research with outputs beneficial to the nation and mankind.

Today all the scientific realms act in a symbiotic manner, and the Biological Sciences offer basic resources for the development of researches in all aspects of human knowledge and education. I wish further enhancement of all activities of the Faculty for the days ahead.
