Among, of, and out of are all essentially interchangeable in this context. However, it sounds a little unusual to mention the other subjects, since they are irrelevant to you liking botany. It sounds more natural to actually draw the comparison:
I like botany.
Among all the subjects, I prefer botany.
Of all the subjects, I favor botany.
I like botany the best (or the most) out of all the subjects.
