While the IBS offers a set of classes each semester, there are instances in which a class may be cancelled due to low enrollment. If there are enough students to warrant, and the instructor is willing, such a class may be converted from a regular class format to a directed studies format, with fewer meetings over the course of a semester.

PSHR 3013 : Buddhist Chaplaincy 

Instructor(s): Staff Units: 3.0
Time: TBDCourse Level: Advanced
Classroom: Sati Center

Two-semester sequence of training offered by the Sati Center (Redwood City, CA) in affiliation with IBS. The student will not only learn about chaplaincy, but begin to develop the necessary skills and understandings for compassionate service to others who are in need, whether they are Buddhists or not. No prerequisites, but both semesters must be completed for credit to be awarded. For further information see the Sati Center for Buddhist Studies, Buddhist Chaplaincy Training Program link. Also note that there is a separate application process for this program, and that early registration directly with the program itself is advisable as space in the program is limited.
