The Ashoka math undergraduate program provides excellent preparation for students interested in pursuing a career in mathematical research. At Ashoka, I was exposed to a variety of courses from many different areas of mathematics. Each course was taught by an expert in the area that the course pertained to. As a consequence, I found that I was taught mathematics at the proper level of rigour, depth, and clarity. The option to complete a capstone thesis in mathematics allowed me to get exposed to various facets of modern mathematical research, which helped me decide to pursue a career in research.
