Gargi has listed many times as one of the best Women's colleges of Delhi University. As a science student, Labs are an integral part of our courses. Gargi College is one of the 2 colleges and the only women's college of Delhi University to have BIF( Bioinformatics infrastructure facility) funded by DBT. Our college also provides immense opportunities to its students to showcase their talents through various societies like.. debate, quiz dramatics, dance, street-play, etc. Many inter and intra college competitions are also organized throughout the year. Each Department has also their individual societies. Like Quasar - physics society, Taru- Botanical society, GERMS- microbiology society and many more.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
As all science courses demand High input from its students. Our 1 st lecture starts at 8:40 am. Usually, a single lecture is of 1 hr duration and Labs lasts 4 hrs per subject. The course is of CBCS type( choice based credit system) and the syllabus is the same as per Delhi University. I genuinely feel, it is designed in such a way to impart students both theory and practical knowledge. During your 3yr of graduation, you can also undertake any project or research work of your interest under your professor's guidance.
