Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences









About Department

With the inception of the College of Basic Sciences in May, 1991, the Department of Botany and Zoology came into existence along with 5 other departments. The department primarily since its inception was a teaching department and offered courses in the twin disciplines of Botany and Zoology to the Under-graduate students of the college as well as the College of Home Science. With the clubbing of Environmental Sciences and merger of the Department of Plant Physiology, the department has been renamed as the Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences from January 2009.
The department offers Post-graduation teaching leading to M.Sc. degree in the disciplines of Biology and Environmental Sciences from 2007-08 Academic session.
