2024-25 programme is now open for applications.

(Deadline of first round: 29 February 2024)



Buddhist Studies is an emerging interdisciplinary field of study in our contemporary world. It becomes an important subset of religious studies. To promote this important field of Buddhist studies, the Graduate Division of Religious Studies of the Department of Cultural and Religious Studies (CRS) and the Center for the Study of Humanistic Buddhism (CSHB) launches a new programme of “Master of Arts in Buddhist Studies”. The programme promotes an understanding of the Mahāyāna Buddhism in its historical context and teachings and thoughts of its different schools. It also emphasizes a depth and breadth of understanding and a life-long learning of the Buddhist tradition.


The programme aims at providing students a systematic and comprehensive training on Buddhist Studies at postgraduate level. In addition to a historical study of the tradition, the programme will also engage students in a discussion of contemporary social issues. The programme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach that studies the Buddhist tradition from textual, philosophical, historical and ethical perspectives. The programme also strives to promote Buddhist studies on Humanistic Buddhism and to nurture Buddhist talents.


Our motto: Seeing humanity with compassion and wisdom
