M. Editor | October 25, 2012
The Institute of Buddhist Studies (IBS), seminary and graduate School, began its 2012 fall semester with a total of eighty students enrolled in its Buddhist Studies programs.
“The IBS continues to grow with the various study programs that are being provided for the needs of the contemporary world. We hope to continue to grow with the help and support of IBS friends who continue to support the vision and direction of our educational program,” said Dr. Richard Payne, Dean.
Of the total number of IBS students, sixteen are in the Common MA program (jointly administered by the IBS and the Graduate Theological Union), one is in the ministerial training program, ten in the Buddhist chaplaincy program, three general Buddhist Studies, and one Theravada Buddhist Studies.
Also attending are four exchange students, two from Ryukoku University, Kyoto, and two from Dharma Drum University, Taiwan.
