Program Details

Ph.D. in Botany Details

The Department of Botany is a leading department of the Hazara University with a distinguished history of research culture. We at the Department are continuously engaged in academic and research activities and research at the M.Phil/Ph.D level is one of the main programs offered by department. The Department is following HEC’s guidelines for M.Phil and Ph.D programmes. Couse work of two semesters (for M.Phil/Ph.D) is designed to equip our research students with advanced knowledge about the major disciplines of plant sciences and to ensure that our faculty and staff continue their professional and intellectual development. We are progressing to achieve our objectives by training and mentoring in scientific and transferable skills through modular lecture courses, research projects, written work, seminars and supervisions. A well-managed Herbarium of over 10, 000 herbarium specimens is maintained at the Department. Further, three labs for a variety of molecular and biological research have already been established and a number of projects are submitted to HEC, Pakistan and other donor agencies for their strengthening.

  • Mission Statement and Program Objectives

To promote creativity and enhance intellectual development of our graduating students as an independence scholar that enable them to accomplish both basic and applied research goals in the field of Botany. To enable our students to carry out novel and original research in the field of Botany aiming to help the society and ensure dissemination of the results into the larger scientific community both nationally and internationally.

 

Note: M. Phil students of Botany are required to pass at least 24 Credit hours while PhD students are required to pass at least 18 credit hours of courses from the below approved scheme of studies.
