Amartya Das graduated on Sunday with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematical and Computational Science and a minor in Global Studies with a focus on South Asian studies.
"I've loved the breadth of classes I've been able to take even within my concentration," he said. "My electives included a Bollywood film class & a class about the history of yoga."
Amartya’s capstone research through the global studies minor focused on the negative influence of politics in the higher education system in India and how that may be remedied.
After graduation, Amartya will be pursuing a master’s degree in Symbolic Systems at Stanford, before working at a management-consulting firm.
"I loved the opportunity to pursue courses so different from my major," he said. "It allowed me to dive deeply into one particular area of the world that I've always been curious about but never studied."
Congratulations Amartya and best of luck!
