The Biology subject was started along with the establishment of the Namrup College in 1973 having Pre-degree science course. The subject was taught by temporary or flying teachers until 1986. Degree course in Biochemistry core was started in 1987. In the meantime, the science stream of the college was brought under deficit grants in the aid system of the government of Assam in 1992. Major course in Botany has been running since 1993.
Now, the Department of Botany of Namrup College is one of the well-equipped department in the college. It has been imparting the teaching on B.
