Department of Botany:

 

Department of Botany started its journey from 2002 as a general degree subject. At that time, the college was under University of Calcutta. Now it is under West Bengal State University, Barasat. The population of the district (24 Parganas, North) is ever increasing. There is no local degree college with Botany as honours subject within 5 KM radius from this college. The demand of local students for higher education in science stream becomes considerably multiplied. Honours degree in botany started in 2011-2012 academic session. We have three classrooms, one with LCD, a herbarium and a museum. The subject Botany is the basic platform to study molecular level of biological world such as biotechnology, biochemistry, microbiology etc.
