The College of Basic Sciences & Humanities was established in 1960 along with the inception of the University. It is a NAAC accredited and ISO 9001:2000 certified institution. The vision of the college has been to provide substantive orientation in basic and applied sciences by teaching and research in agriculture and allied sciences and technology.
Besides assisting in teaching and research in other faculties, the college runs 12 P.G. and 9 Ph. D. programmes in different disciplines of science. The college carries the onus of instructional responsibilities in all the academic programmes of the university from of 15% to 32% at Undergraduate and 15% to 46% at the Postgraduate level. Each year the faculty of the college teaches 240 courses at the postgraduatelevel to about 1500 students and 50 courses to about 6050 students at the UG level.
All the technological and scientific advancements are not possible without a sound background of basic sciences. The basic theories of science like physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology have been vital to evolve the advance sciences like nanotechnology, biophysics, biotechnology, and many others which have strengthen the present and will ease the future of the society. G. B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, one of the reputed university of Northern India has emerged as a scientific hub with College of Basic Sciences & Humanities as one of its premier centres. The staff of college has worked day and night to produce the elites able to carry the lantern of science further ahead. Our alumni are at the prestigious positions in various sectors giving back to the society what they acquired in their Alma Mater. Paying respect to the need of the hour, we have included modern scientific courses as well as Biotechnology, Biophysics, etc, which have the power to change the future for the betterment. There are ten (10) departments in the college and all are working to a fine line of perfection. All the departments are getting honored at the national and international level and have much educational collaboration for which the web page of the respective departments can be referred to. Furthermore, we realize the need of strong extra-curricular background and for the same we have a college society, Science and Humanities Society and various departmental student bodies under the guidance of faculty members to organize various events. In a nutshell, from the day we are associated with this wonderful institution, we have devoted everything we could to make it better in all the prospects so as to provide an overall development of our students. We are consistently producing a very elite human resource with good academic record, brilliant extracurricular and strong moral values. I wish we let not this pace abate and continue our exemplary work in the field of education.
The founding fathers of the university envisioned a strong base in basic and applied sciences as bedrock on which the foundation of teaching and research in agriculture, allied sciences and technology could be laidhence, the School of Basic Sciences & Humanities was established which was later upgraded to College of Basic Sciences & Humanities (C.B.S. & H.) in 1972.The College of Basic Sciences & Humanities has been one of the main constituent colleges of the University.
