The courses within this section equip the student with the basic skills to study Buddhist thought. Especially a high command of English is absolutely essential for the successful study of Buddhism, as today's predominant scientific language is English. But also advanced skills in computer and web technology is key, because the libraries are more and more electronic and the future research will be predominately digital in nature. Thus the aim of these lectures is to equip the students with the basic skills they will need for their successful studies.
