M.Sc. in Biochemistry program of WBSU is a laboratory based science subject course exposing the students in the modern areas of interdisciplinary biological and biochemical sciences. This course introduces the post-graduate students to the state of the art methodologies of biochemical, biotechnological and molecular biological sciences. This course is extremely important from the view point of applied field of interdisciplinary biological sciences. The concept of interdisciplinary sciences is gaining momentum these days and the course of M.Sc. Biochemistry aims at establishing such interdisciplinary orientation in biological sciences removing the subject-wise barriers among Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Physiology and other life science oriented subjects. This course also opens the door to a variety of careers. After studying M.Sc. in Biochemistry, students can proceed for a research career in the field of interdisciplinary biological and biochemical sciences by doing Ph.D., doing post-doctoral studies and possess high chances of being appointed as a faculty in an academic institute. After pursuing M.Sc. in Biochemistry, students have also ample scope to get employment as a biochemist/ analytical chemist/toxicologist in several sectors such as employment in government and industrial laboratories, in forensic science laboratories, opportunities in clinical diagnostic medicine in hospitals and in the numerous companies now providing diagnostic procedures, the pharmaceutical, brewing and food processing industries, monitoring and control of pollution, in the biotechnology industry etc. Biochemistry will continue to have very good prospect for the professions of medicine and pharmacy. Opportunities exist in universities and research institutes for biochemists with higher research degrees. With the development of healthcare infrastructure and improved health care financing, the career scope in M.Sc. in Biochemistry is expected to rise by the year 2020.
Also the Department was previously run by Guest faculties. On July, 2019 three faculty members have been recruited in substantive posts.
