The Department of Zoology was established in Yangon University in 1965. It started as the Department of Biology in 1960 and then was divided into two departments as the Department of Zoology and the Department of Botany. Dr Mrs. J. A. Lynsdale was the first Professor in the Department of Zoology. Over the past fifty years the Department has grown and is dedicated to providing students with excellent learning opportunities to encourage their interest in Zoology.
