Our Programmes

Undergraduate Programme

Ashoka University offers a multidisciplinary undergraduate programme, in the interest of exposing students to many different perspectives in and out of the classroom. Students might come to Ashoka already determined to specialise in one subject, but they are not expected to declare their Major until the middle of the second year.

Delivered in collaboration with

Ashoka Scholars Programme

Ashoka University, in compliance with UGC guidelines, offers a 3-year Bachelor’s Degree programme.  It also offers a year-long Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Studies and Research (DipASR). All undergraduates graduating with Bachelor’s Degrees at the end of their third year, or who have completed by that time at least academic 92 credits of their degree programme, are eligible for admission into the Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Studies and Research programme, also known as the Ashoka Scholars Programme (ASP). Students who need to complete up to 8 credits of their undergraduate degree must do so within the first semester of the ASP. All students who fall into either of these categories must formally apply for admission to the ASP towards the end of the Spring semester of their third year. The exact date will be circulated by the OAA.

Young India Fellowship

YIF is Ashoka University’s fully residential one-year multidisciplinary liberal studies in postgraduate diploma programme. First of its kind in India, the Fellowship brings together the brightest students from diverse academic and social backgrounds, who are then guided by distinguished scholars and leaders of our times. They are taught to develop critical thinking and writing skills, understand leadership and group dynamics and get exposure to a wide range of subjects. This transformational experience turns them into problem-solvers and collaborators who are an asset to organisations and society.

Delivered in collaboration with

Masters in Liberal Studies

Ashoka University’s MA programme in Liberal Studies is a 32-credit, a 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 as a graduate assistant. This programme’s interdisciplinary module contains coursework from a variety of disciplines, including Humanities, Social Sciences, Behavioural Sciences, and Natural Sciences. The University aims to train students to think critically about their disciplines of interest while deriving insights from other disciplines. The MA programme in Liberal Studies also helps students to prepare their graduate applications.

Masters programme in Economics

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. Applications opened for the first batch of Masters in Economics students in February this year.

Masters in English

Ashoka University’s MA programme in English mentors students to think across boundaries of genre, culture and time. The programme’s curriculum introduces students to a wide array of texts, theories and disciplinary formations from around the world. The programme lets students pursue courses in other departments at the University for integrated education.
