About

This program is offered during winter sessions between the fall and spring semesters and is based in Kolkata, Darjeeling and Sikkim, the former Tibetan Buddhist Himalayan kingdom. During this intensive study abroad program you are immersed in India’s urban and rural environments where you study sacred art, architecture, and religious traditions. In Kolkata, conduct field research about the spiritual traditions of Jainism and Hinduism with visits to local temples and shrines. Study Indian sacred art at the Indian Museum that is home to a centuries-old collection of masterpieces of bronze and stone sculpture.

In Darjeeling and Sikkim the focal point of study is Tibetan Buddhism. Each day your classroom is a different Buddhist monastery where you receive lectures from prominent local scholars and Buddhist monks who share their in-depth knowledge and personal experience. Learn and practice Buddhist meditation each day. Study the timeless traditions of creating Buddhist sacred art with some of the most famous artists in Sikkim.
