B.A. Buddhist Studies

The Bachelor of Arts Program is a 120 credit 8-semester programme, which aims to offer students a unique opportunity of experiencing a comprehensive and in-depth study of Buddhism from a nonsectarian point of view while promoting knowledge and understanding of the different schools and traditions within Buddhism. As an academic institution IBC will strictly adhere to the norms of a liberal arts education, adopting an academic approach to Buddhist Studies. However, it will seek to combine the region of academic scholarship with a continuous inculcation of Buddhist spiritual value, as in the tradition of ancient Buddhist seats of learning like Nalanda and Vikkramasila, where in the process of learning one imbibes nearly the whole of its culture.
