Doctoral Program in Buddhist Studies

The Doctoral Program in Buddhist Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt in Munich is dedicated to academic research on Buddhism in all its manifestations. This interfaculty program is aimed at postgraduates from the fields of cultural studies, religious studies and social sciences. Bringing together the skills and expertise of the participating subjects of Indology, Japanese Studies, Religious Studies, Sinology, and Tibetology, interdepartmental and research-oriented courses, the philological, religious studies and cultural studies expertise of the participating disciplines all play integral roles in this structured degree course. This, together with intensive mentoring and evaluation by a team of supervisors, allows the Doctoral Program in Buddhist studies to create a truly interdisciplinary environment ideal for young international academics.
