 Study Buddhist Studies at Otago

Library bookshelf 

Overview

Buddhism is the dominant religion in many Asian countries and has played an important role in the history and culture of Asia.

The minor in Buddhist Studies provides an introduction to Buddhism through its Indian origins (RELS 102) and then allows you to focus on the development of Buddhism in other regions of Asia.

You may also choose to combine your study of Buddhism with the study of one or more of the languages of the Buddhist scriptures (Sanskrit, Chinese, or Japanese).

Buddhist Studies is also available as an endorsement for the Diploma for Graduates (DipGrad).
