B.Sc. Life Sciences, the erstwhile B.Sc. General Group ‘B’ course, represents synergy between three disciplines, namely Botany, Chemistry and Zoology, which the students are taught with equal emphasis. The Botany and Zoology component comprises not only the study of cell, microorganisms and biodiversity but also focuses on imparting an understanding of metabolism, genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology and applied aspects. The Chemistry component encompasses theentire spectrum of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry as well as green chemistry.

The three Departments have highly qualified and dedicated faculty members. All the laboratory staff members are cooperative and committed. Each of the three Departments has well equipped laboratories so that the students are able to perform hands on experiments included in the new curriculum and also carry out simple project work. The students have access to the books of the libraries of the three Departments besides the main library of the college. The departmental libraries have reading spaces which are equipped with computers.


The lecture rooms and laboratories are equipped with LCD projectors and the lectures are delivered with the help of PowerPoint presentations. Instructions for practical classes are given with the help of museum and herbarium specimens, permanent microslides, models and PowerPoint presentations. The experiments and methodology are demonstrated by the teachers which enables the students to execute them carefully. Discussion and class tests are held regularly. Assessment is in the form of tests, quizzes, assignments and presentations.

Capacity Building

Bridge courses are conducted by the Departments for the students of B.Sc. Life Sciences I Year to acquaint them with safety measures in the laboratory, and the use of basic techniques and equipment. Hands on workshops are organized to supplement the topics of the syllabus. Students also participate in DSKC Summer Internship Projects. Educational field trips are organized to enable the students to learn about industrial processes, and familiarize them with the concept of sustainable ecological development. The students visit Yamuna Biodiversity parks, and research institutions like the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, accompanied by teachers. Tours are also planned to hill stations to study the local biodiversity and include visit to institutes such as the Forest Research Institute, Dehradun.
