The Department of Botany was established in 1927 under Madras University. Over the years it has become a full fledged department with graduate and post graduate courses in Botany and a research centre affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. The Department is presently recognized by the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India under the FIST program.
The Department has identified various thrust areas of research viz. Plant systematics, Pharmacognosy, Phytochemistry, Seed Physiology, Environmental Sciences, Plant Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering.
