KATHMANDU, Sept 5: Lumbini College of Buddhism and Himalayan Studies (LCBHS) is all set to enroll students for Master's Degree in Buddhism, arguably for the first time in Nepal.
The college affiliated to Lumbini Buddhist University so far has been running undergraduate courses since its establishment in 2012. The college is set to introduce the course from the academic year 2018/19.
The course which will be centered on Mahayan philosophy and Himalayan Buddhist culture will also cover Tibetan culture and language. The course has been divided into four semesters and will take two years for completion.
The course will be run with the assistance of Bodhi Himalayan Foundation, an organization recognized by various national and international Buddhist associations. Keeping in mind that most of the students would have to work in day time, the college has decided to run the course in the evening.
