       The Department of Botany started functioning from 1967. The late Dr. A.P. Mani who made his mark as trail-blazer principal of Baselius College also bestowed the same glow as the first head of the Department of Botany. The Department remembers with deep gratitude the meritorious service rendered by H. G. Kuriakose Mar Clemis Metropolitan who was the former Corporate manager of M.O.C. Colleges and H.O.D. of this department and Dr. M. E.  Kuriakose (Retired principal of K.G. College, Pampadi who received Tharsis Foundation award for the Best Principal 2012) & all other retired members of the staff. As a part of the UGC sponsored Add- on Course in Natural Rubber Production and Plantation Management, the department has taken the initiative to start Latex Testing (DRC) Laboratory since 2005. Many rubber growers in and around Kottayam are availing this opportunity to know the actual DRC of latex samples from the department. From 2011 onwards Department conducts exhibitions, seminars etc. in connection with National Environment Awareness Campaign in collaboration with Ministry of Environment, Govt. of India. The department has a good library with more than 900 books and also a well-equipped computer lab with internet facility. Now the department offers an Open Course in Horticulture and Nursery Management for the 5th semester students with on hand training.

       The Botany Association offers ample chances for students to participate in various extracurricular activities. The department takes pride in conducting Dr. A.P. Mani Memorial Inter Collegiate Botany Quiz to commemorate the first Head of the department and the first principal of the college. The department has also brought laurels galore to the College by the way of University Ranks and prizes.
