B. Sc. Botany

Bachelor of Science Honours in Botany

B.Sc. (Honours.) Botany or Bachelor of Science Honours in Botany is an undergraduate Botany course. Botany is the science which treats of the structure of plants, the functions of their parts, their places of growth, their classification, and the terms which are employed in their description and denomination. B.Sc. (Honours.) Botany degree course includes the study of the structure, growth, development, and metabolism of a wide range of biological disciplines, including plants, algae and fungi. The Botany Honours course provides a complete training in plant forms, geographical distribution and taxonomy of flora, cytogenetic, molecular genetics, biotechnology and cell/seed biology, with special reference to Indian ecology, environment, commodities and forestry. B.Sc. (Honours.) Botany is a three years degree course, and it is career orienting in nature that opens a lot of jobs for the candidates and the course is being provided by many colleges / universities in the country.
