2011 Fall Enrollment
M. Editor | September 27, 2011
The incoming class of fall 2011 at the Institute of Buddhist Studies is one of growing diversity of interest in Buddhist Studies, Shin Ministry and Buddhist Chaplaincy.
Some fifteen ministerial students are enrolled in the degree program, and five are auditing courses on-line. A total of fourteen students are in the Buddhist Chaplaincy degree certification program.Â Two students are in general studies with the goal of eventual ministry.
Of the Graduate Theological Union students participating in the IBS program, seventeen are on-site and twenty-two are taking on-line courses.
â€œIBS continues to grow as it brings Buddhist thought into the western context and provides for an avenue of seeing things from a different perspective, stated Dr. Richard Payne, IBS Dean.
