Programmes

Ashoka University offers three types of postgraduate programmes at present. The first is the Young India Fellowship (YIF), a one-year multidisciplinary diploma programme in Liberal Studies. Fellows then, have the option to pursue their Masters in Liberal Studies (MLS) after graduating from the YIF. Fellows who have been accepted by an Ashoka University faculty mentor to work on a specific research project as a graduate assistant, stay back for an additional year to pursue their MA liberal arts. The programme is highly interdisciplinary and entails coursework from a variety of disciplines. Apart from this, Ashoka University’s Masters programme in Economics has been developed to provide students with the opportunity to be trained in modern Economics by highly qualified economists and the MA programme in English will provide a unique intellectual experience for these students while carving out a much-needed path to higher studies abroad and in India.

  • Master of Arts (Hons) in Liberal Studies

    Ashoka University’s MA (Hons) programme in Liberal Studies is a 38-credit, one-year programme offered to students who have graduated with a diploma in Liberal Studies from the Young India Fellowship, and have been accepted by an Ashoka University faculty mentor to work on a specific research project. This programme’s interdisciplinary module contains coursework from a variety of disciplines, including Humanities, Social Sciences, Behavioural Sciences, and Natural Sciences.
