About the Department

The subject Microbiology was introduced in this college at the Under Graduate (UG) level in the year 1997. Since the 1997 academic session, Microbiology was introduced by Calcutta University at UG level as a subject of study to award a degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours [B.Sc. (Hons)]. APC College is one of the first colleges (along with one more college), under Calcutta University to commence the Three Years B.Sc. Honours Degree course on Microbiology. Presently, the three year UG course is divided into three parts, Part I, Part II and Part III, containing 30 seats in each part, including reserved seats as per UGC norms. We have the privilege to submit that our first batch of 7 graduate students passed out in the year 2000 of which 5 secured 1st class, which included the top ranker in the Calcutta University merit list. Such outstanding performances by the students at the UG level proved to be inspirational for our Department of Microbiology, as well as for the entire APC College, that still remains a pivotal source of motivation for the students and the teachers alike. Subsequent batches of students continued to excel in their respective academic sessions.
