​​UG and PG Depar​tment of Chemistry / Bio-Chemistry


Department of Chemistry is the biggest department in the college as chemistry is a core subject in all combinations of biological sciences and physical science (PCM). Department is also currently housing Bio-Chemistry. Bio-Chemistry as a individual subject is available in the college both at UG and PG Level. M.Sc Bio-Chemestry was started in the year 2009.
