Courses taken from within the department will enable students to understand contemplative traditions from historical, doctrinal, institutional and cultural perspectives. Courses from other units included in the program place contemplative traditions within scientific, sociological and experiential frameworks and also consider contemporary applications of such practices.

Additional Course Work
