The Department of Biology

The Department of Biology was established in February 1973 in the old building of the Faculty of Science by admitting 50 general biology students. The professors and founders of the Department of Biology were: Mr. Amirafshari, Dr. Jalali, the late Dr. Rahi, Mr. Safaei Shirazi, Dr. Mokhtari, Dr. Mostavafi, Dr. Vahdat, and Dr. Vaziri. Thanks to the increase in the number of academic staff members of the department, the number of students admitting to the department as well as the offered degrees increased. Presently, the department offers 3 programs at the B.S. level, 8 programs at the M.S. level and 4 programs at the PhD level. More than 600 students are studying at this department currently.
