Students now have the opportunity to pursue an academic degree in Buddhist Studies at the GTF under the direction of Sensei Dr. J. Anthony Stultz. This new program is designed for professionals interested in a comprehensive degree in Buddhist Theology who would like to simply further their education or ultimately pursue a doctoral degree. Those seeking ordination who require additional training components, and those who would like to earn chaplaincy certification, may also be interested in this degree.
The M.Th. in Buddhist Studies is a 30-credit program consisting of six courses and an academic thesis. Students in this program will focus on a variety of areas of study such as the history of religion, history of Buddhism, scriptures and sacred writings, Western Buddhism, theology, and psychology.

Coursework for this degree may be completed through the GTF or through our P.R.I.M.E. affiliate, The Blue Lotus School of Mindfulness Arts.
