DISTANCE LEARNING> MA in Buddhist Studies at Otago

Will Sweetman's picture

We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new MA in Buddhist Studies by coursework at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Further details may be obtained at https://www.otago.ac.nz/courses/subjects/budh.html or from Will Sweetman (will.sweetman@otago.ac.nz).

Each year, one of the elective courses for the MA (RELS 521 Readings in Buddhist Texts) will be taught by a visiting lecturer. In 2019, Professor Justin McDaniel will read Buddhist Cosmological Texts and Contexts. The MA is available by distance learning, but students taking RELS 521 will need to be present on campus in Dunedin for an intensive seminar from 11-16 February 2019.

If you have students who you think would be interested in the MA, we'd be grateful if you would draw it to their attention. 

Best wishes


Will Sweetman
