New GTU Certificate in Asian Faith Traditions and Cultures

Thursday, April 15, 2010, 3:39 pm

The 2010 Surjit Singh Lecture in Comparative Religious Thought and Culture was presented at the Pacific School of Religion on April 13, 2010. At the event, the Graduate Theological Union’s Asia Project announced a new certificate program open to GTU MA, MDiv, and PhD students: the Certificate in Asian and Oceanic Cultures and Faith Traditions (AOCFT).

The Institute of Buddhist Studies is pleased to support this certificate program, and a number of our courses, events, and special lectures will help fulfill many of the program’s requirements.

The AOCFT Program is aimed to offer an interdisciplinary, multi-faith, and cross-cultural program, which takes advantage of the academic offerings on Asia and Oceania at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU), its member schools, and affiliates.  The overarching aim of the AOCFT Program is to facilitate a richer, more differentiated understanding of the faith traditions of Asia and Oceania.

For more information on this program, visit the Asia projects webpage here or download this informational flyer.
