Botany

St Agnes College, a premier institution imparts quality education to women students and develops the individual as a whole. The college is affiliated to the Mangalore University and obtained an autonomous status from the academic year 2007 – 2008, throwing open new avenues and challenging courses to suit the student community.

The endeavor has been to provide students with the latest information along with due weight age to the concepts of classical botany so that students are able to understand and appreciate the current inter-disciplinary approaches in the study of plant sciences and its role in societal development. A paper on Plant Biotechnology will provide a glimpse of the application aspect. The course content also lists the new practical exercises so that the students get a hands-on experience of the latest techniques that are currently in use. The course is framed keeping in mind the guidelines of the UGC and Mission and Vision of the college.
