The Department of Botany began in the year 1964 along with the college. The department was enriched by the presence of active and skilled teachers. Over the years, seven teachers worked in this department. As there was no degree course in Botany in the college, the teachers were engaged to teach the Pre-degree course till the year 2000 and then the supplementary paper for the B.Sc Zoology course.
Prof. K C Joseph was awarded the best teacher award by the Central Inspection Team from the state Head quarters, Ministry of Education, Gangole State Nigeria during the year 1982.
