It is a 2 year  postgraduate degree programme.The Students will  be able to interpret the plant life through  various perspectives and  the relationship of the plant kingdom with the environment.The programme develops skills in various fields like microbial techniques, cultivation  and identification of plants, preparation  of  biofertilizers, handling of instruments and research skills.. By accquiring knowledge, students could be competent enough to face the competitive exams at national /state level (UGC-NET, CSIR/ SET etc.) and academic excellence with an aptitude for higher studies and research. In addition, the programme develops scientific tools to facilitate the students to design and carryout the biological experiments and to interpret data to give meaningful solution and recommendations. The specialization of PG programme in Genetic engineering and Environmental biology and biodiversity conservation. By applying the acquired scientific knowledge, students could give solutions to lead a healthy life, protect the environment.
