About Course Structure:
                                    The course structure of M. Sc. In Geology has been so designed with a view to provide a fairly wide range of branches both in pure and applied aspects of geology, and to train students with up-to-date knowledge of the subject. The basic framework and the course content have been drawn from the Model Syllabus of University Grants Commission. However, course content has been added wherever gap are there.
