The Department of Botany was established in 2002 with a B.Sc. (General) course and the Honours course was introduced in 2012. The Department offers undergraduate programmes in Botany Honours and General as per the recent syllabus of the University of Calcutta. The programmes emphasize on emerging areas of modern Botany including various advanced courses like Biochemistry, Plant Biotechnology, Ecology, Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology; Applied Botany (Research methodology, Tissue culture techniques, Greenhouse technology, Industrial Botany) and Fundamental Botany (Cryptogams and Phanerogams, Taxonomy of Angiosperms, Plant Anatomy, Plant Physiology etc.). The Department has implemented the Choice-based Credit System (CBCS) for grading B.Sc. students introduced by the University in the year 2018, which offers flexibility in the structuring and assessment of courses. The Department has always placed emphasis on teaching and co-curricular activities. Since its inception, it has been recognized for its quality of teaching and research in various areas of Botany. A well balanced curriculum having theory and practical and qualified faculty have been the hallmarks of the Department.

The Departmental Head, Dr. Sanchaita Lala, has undertaken research projects in the area of Nanobiotechnology including Nanomedicine with funding from various National agencies.

The overall goal of the Department of Botany has been to impart quality education at the undergraduate level along with continuous efforts on basic and applied aspects of plant science research.

Highlights of the Department:
The faculty are specialized in different sub-domains of Plant Science. The faculty members of the Botany Department regularly employ modern ICT techniques like Powerpoint presentations in their instructions.

   The Department has a well-equipped laboratory. Apart from active research work, the Department has functional laboratories for UG teaching purpose. Some of the instruments present in the Department include UV-Visible spectrophotometer, autoclave, laminar air-flow cabinet, binocular light microscope and an ultracentrifuge. The Botany Department has a well-furnished museum for permanent specimens and a Herbarium.

   The Departmental Head, Dr. Sanchaita Lala is a recipient of various research projects and fellowships and is a recognized Ph.D. Supervisor at Jadavpur University. She is a reviewer for various international research journals as well as a resource person for workshops and training programs.

   The Department also regularly organises field trips, study tours, botanical excursions, that help in bringing about holistic development of students. A Botanical excursion were arranged to Munsiary, Kausani and Nainital in Uttarakhand with B.Sc. students and faculty of the Department in 2017. B.Sc. students had a real world experience in observing wild plants of different forest terrains during this trip. Excursions were organized to Arunachal Pradesh during the session 2017-2018, to East Sikkim including Gangtok and Zuluk in 2018-2019 and to Darjeeling and Lamahatta in 2019-2020 for collection and survey of various plant life forms. In addition, several local excursions along with a compulsory visit to Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden are arranged every year by the Department.

While considering the subjects with high demand, Computer Science is definitely one of them, in the current scenario. One of the reasons for this is the wide variety of career options available. In the era of digitization, knowing computer is not a luxury, rather it is essential. Knowing how to operate a computer or how to use some application is the basic need for all. But what is behind it? How the computer is operating? How to build those applications? Answers to all these questions are in the subject Computer Science. The Computer Science department of Sarsuna College is well equipped with modern laboratory facilities. There are three dedicated software laboratories and one hardware laboratory in the department. In the year 2014, regular Post Graduate course in Computer Science was introduced under the affiliation of the University of Calcutta. Sarsuna College was the first college to get Calcutta University affiliation for the regular Post Graduate course in Computer Science. The department focuses on motivating the students for higher studies and Research activities.
