Department of Botany in Moyna College started its glorious journey from 1998, with the subjected being introduced as a General Course. With the success all-round the corners and achievement by student, it was subsequently taken up as an Honours Course from 2017.

From its initiation, the department had tried to develop and upgrade itself to keep pace with other science departments. Faculty members are actively engaged not only in teaching but also in personal and professional counseling of the student. A student of Botany finds scope in educational institutions i.e. high schools, colleges to universities and industries. To generate knowledge and produce researchers, leaders and graduates in various fields in plant sciences, microbial sciences, ecology, evolution, biosystematics and biotechnology capable of providing solutions to industrial, health, agricultural and environmental challenges. We focus on the patterns and processes that enable predictive understanding of plants and their environments at local, regional, and global scales.
