2010 Spring Enrollment
M. Editor | March 3, 2010
The Institute of Buddhist Studies, a graduate Buddhist seminary for Buddhist and Ministerial Studies in Berkeley, began its 2010 spring semester with a total enrollment of 69 students. Of the total, 21 students are enrolled at IBS, of which 11 students are on the ministerial track.
Dr. Richard Payne, IBS Dean, stated that the past few years the enrollment has steadily increased due to the new IBS location with the Jodo Shinshu Center. Also, the courses offered have created a greater interest in the study of Buddhism.
Payne added, â€œOf the 69 students,48 are students from the Graduate Theological Union. The interest in the study of Buddhism has grown, which creates a better understanding of Buddhism. The students are all graduate students who are studying to be ministers, teachers, or church supporters of their tradition.â€
