A Recognised Independent Centre of the University of Oxford
STEFANO ZACCHETTI (1968 – 2020)
We are deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of Stefano Zacchetti, Numata Professor of Buddhist Studies at Balliol College. Ever since his arrival in 2012 he has participated generously in the work of the Centre, and served as our Deputy Academic Director and Deputy Chair of the Trustees. It has been a joy to watch Buddhist Studies at Oxford blossom under his dedicated tutelage. His death leaves a huge absence. His warm and openhearted nature enriched all our lives. Our thoughts are with his family and his pupils.
This 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.
