Study Abroad Programs with Mathematics

During the four months I spent in Vancouver, I found myself deeply interested in coding and cryptography, which I had never had the chance to discover before. I took a class named Algebra and Coding Theory, which introduced me into this particular branch of applied mathematics. I think this will serve as a foundation for my future study in graduate school.
