    •  The department of Botany is one of the science departments of New Government Degree College for Women, Golconda established in 2015, it had the rare privilege of becoming the first science department of the college. The college is now affiliated to the Osmania University, Hyderabad.Right from 2015 the department offered a 3year undergraduate program in Botany with Zoology and Chemistry as subsidiary subjects. The course was modeled on the annual evaluation system and the instruction was tailored to address the learning objectives defined in the syllabus. With the introduction of choicebased credit system the departmentmoved to more flexible and innovative space in terms of the form and content of the program from 2016 onwards.The new program is structured on semester basis which runs through 3 years from the entry level. VISION ❖ To facilitate women’s access to the domain of scientific knowledge to contribute significantly in the dissemination of new knowledge in the discipline of Botany by providing strong foundation. ❖ To inculcate critical thinking, group discussions, analytical skills to enable to pursue higher studies and research in Life sciences, Forensic sciences related to the field of Botany. ❖ To create human resources in the region properly equipped and trained strictly in adherence to the language of the discipline of Botany. ❖ Inculcate high values through a liberal education ❖ Promote research and learning at the UG level and beyond. MISSION The goals of mission are well defined and synchronized with its vision. ❖ To stimulate the propensity of the women in the region to imbibe the spirit of knowledge To provide space for appropriate pedagogy to inculcate the knowledge of the discipline and the human values ❖ To offer academic programs at under graduate and post graduate levels in the discipline of Botany. ❖ To strengthen the drive for moving towards the frontier knowledge of the discipline of Botany. ❖ To move beyond academics to provide leadership for community centered activities in the region.
