Online courses aim to enrich students’ understanding and practice of the Dharma by making academic perspectives and scholarly research accessible and engaging. Courses are open to all; no one will be turned away for financial reasons. 

If you are new to the historical study of Buddhism, it would be a good idea to read Rupert Gethin’s Foundations of Buddhism or a similar historical introduction prior to the start of the course. 

Any questions regarding preparation, course content or registration can be directed to the course instructor.

We regularly add new courses and offer workshops on specific topics, so check back to see what’s happening.
