Animal science (also bioscience) is described as "studying the biology of animals that are under the control of humankind". It can also be described as the production and management of farm animals. Historically, the degree was called animal husbandry and the animals studied were livestock species, like cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and horses. Today, courses available now look at a far broader area to include companion animals like dogs and cats, and many exotic species. Degrees in Animal Science are offered at a number of colleges and universities. Typically, the Animal Science curriculum not only provides a strong science background, but also hands-on experience working with animals on campus-based farms. Professional education in animal science prepares students for career opportunities in areas such as animal breeding, food and fiber production, nutrition, animal agribusiness, animal behavior and welfare. Courses in a typical Animal Science program may include genetics, microbiology, animal behavior, nutrition, physiology, and reproduction. Courses in support areas, such as genetics, soils, agricultural economics and marketing, legal aspects, and the environment also are offered. All of these courses are essential to entering an animal science profession.
Poultry science is a specialization of animal science concerned with finding improved and more effective ways of raising poultry that produce flavorful and healthy eggs and meat.

Translation has been associated with the existence of human being. However, before the evolution of language and literature, the unwritten literature or orature, the human communication was undertaken through the mode of translation. The very idea of conceiving the thought and ideas has been co-related with the specific form of translation and that may be treated as conception and construct of ideas, views and transmitting them from one person to the other. As the father of Modern Western Philosophy Rene Descartes, propounded the philosophy of rationalism with the statement cogito-ergo-sum which means “I think therefore I am”. Translation is also communicated with these perceptions which explore the communication and exchange of ideas and messages from one language to the other, one person to the other. This crosses with all kinds of boundaries relating to nation, identity, sex, caste and creed. Thus, it has become a necessity for the very existence of human being. As there are thousands of languages in the world and cultural and linguistic exchange is mandatory among the people, therefore, as Susan Bassenett said that translation is a fundamental act of human exchange. Translation is not meant to serve the purpose of linguistic exercise, but act as a means of communication among educated and literate one but also acts as a mode of communication among the common masses, even the uneducated ones.
With the evolution of translation as an act of linguistic exchange and thereafter the mode of transmission of messages and information, translation also evolved as a discipline of studies with occupying a specific space in the areas of studies pertaining to interdisciplinary study, literature and comparative study. This also acted as a means of cultural and political as hegemonies; besides occupying a significant position in the form and construction of power structure.
Keeping in view the emergence of translation studies as a discipline and its significant place in the domain of research of knowledge updation cutting across the Nation’s cultures and other boundaries. A study of translation studies has become not only very important affair but also a social and academic obligation of our country especially when the nation is having the nature of multi-lingual and multi-cultural societies.
The act of translation is associated with the extension and exchange of knowledge, academic enrichment and contribution to the areas of translation by research and other academic pursuits.
This was the background of the idea of formation of Translation as a Discipline of Studies and creation of School of Studies i.e., School of Translation Studies and Training (SOTST. Since then various efforts have been made with research and academic endeavour of translation practice and translation study as a study of literature.
The School of Translation Studies and Training (SOTST) perceives the idea of exploring the avenues and preservation of knowledge by qualitative endeavours in teaching and research relating to the translation studies and other allied areas. To actualize this idea, the School intends to offer relevant academic programmes and research pursuits to contribute to the area of knowledge and strengthen and broaden the innovative perspectives in the exchange and transmission of the invested and available research and knowledge, besides enriching, enhancing the competence of human resources to perform the various activities relating to translation.
The Mission of the School of Translation Studies and Training is to strengthen the objectives of the University to reaching the unreached and also to contribute to the area of knowledge through teaching, research and extension activities. The committal attitude to this motivates the School to engage itself in the advancement of innovative exercises and research endeavours pertaining to translation studies, inter-disciplinary studies and cultural studies and comparative literature among others. This also involves the School to pay much attention to maintain high quality and standard in the research activities and critical insight to the learners studying various programmes offered by SOTST. In addition to that, the School makes the best efforts for motivation to employability and practical perspectives of studies to the learners to make themselves as good translation practitioners and prove responsible citizens of the nation.
The basic Mission can be underlined as to get the best out of the students and give them exposure to bring out their knowledge for the contribution to the domain knowledge and research for the growth of the nation.
Since its establishment, the School has been a front runner in identifying the need of suitable educational programmes for the benefit of the variety of demands of the immense learner community. The University follows a learner-centric approach and has successfully adopted a policy of openness and flexibility of time taken for completion of programme and place of study hence accordingly is contributing significantly in designing and delivering variety of programs for higher education through its schools of Studies having a philosophy of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode.
There had been a long felt need to develop the programmes of co-scholastic nature hence the School of Performing and Visual Arts was established.
The School of Performing and Visual Arts is functional with a vision to provide higher education opportunities in the Performing and Visual Arts through open & distance learning mode of education. Within the above context, the School of Performing and Visual Arts is visualized as a location that intents to implement a new vision of art pedagogy and practices. It aims at being constituted by the principle of creative expression, processes, practices and disciplines, including historical, theoretical and critical engagements. The idea is to focus on areas of knowledge and professional specializations and is imagined as a breeding ground for the development of classical and newer art practices and theoretical insights in the direction of finding paradigms in performing and visual art forms with greater amalgamation between theory, practice and research on one hand, and interdisciplinary approach between various arts on the other.
The present philosophy of all-round development of knowledge in Visual and Performing Art education have not been able to carve out a distinguish place of their own. The need of the hour is that the creative expressions should get importance at par with theoretical and practical dimensions of the discipline with integration at under graduate and post graduate level, and more than that, possibilities of research, leading to many programs to be explored through ODL.
While keeping in view the possible inclusion of a larger or the total range of artistic medium and forms within the School of Performing and Visual Arts curriculum, it had been envisaged that the School would primarily organize itself around two major streams of artistic practice; performing arts and visual arts, with further allied specializations. These are:
The course structures of each of the streams and specializations would be designed keeping in view the composite and generic focus of the School, which would facilitate conceptual commonalities to interactively and creatively coexist between the various disciplines and streams of specialization.
To promote all forms of arts at higher education to unfold the aesthetic and creative potentialities of learner enabling them to become a contributing professional.
To promote aesthetics as a learning process in professional and academic arena.
To inculcate creativity through diverse range of creative activities and modes of expression.
To engage in praxis and theory through latest and modern pedagogical tools that reach out to the distant learner in the Open and Distance Learning system.
To nurture traditional and contemporary art practices in areas of the Visual and Performing Arts and provide grounds for critical research.
