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 Botany Department is one of the well-equipped department in the college. Apart from delivery of academic curriculum, we are organising various activties throughout the year. World Biodiversity Day, International Wetland Day, Environment Day, No Tobacco Day etc. are our key events organising in a year. From the academic session 2020-21, Botany department added skill based course "Mushroom Cultivation".
Some of our ex-students are well established in various fields. Some alumni students are working as Teacher in University, College and School level. Some are working in banks, government offices, Tea Garden, Company etc.
