Buddhist Studies Program

A unique interdisciplinary program integrating language and non-language units of study, the Buddhist Studies program familiarises students with the dynamic nature of Buddhist philosophical, textual, meditative, artistic, and ritual traditions in Asia, as well as the ways that Buddhism has engaged with Globalisation and the West in modernity. It also provides students with an understanding of the historical, social, cultural and political contexts in which Buddhist traditions emerged and continue to develop, as well as how ideas, doctrines and practices have changed during the course of Buddhism's transmission across cultures.
