Launch of the MPhil in Buddhist Studies

We are very pleased to announce that Oxford University is offering a MPhil in Buddhist Studies in 2015-16.

This newly launched two-year degree aims to give comprehensive training in one of the main Buddhist canonical languages, namely Sanskrit, Classical Tibetan and Classical Chinese. In-depth explorations of Buddhist history, philosophy, and literature will be the focus, along with a comprehensive study of important Buddhist texts in the original language.

This degree can be a standalone qualification or preparation for doctoral research.
