Maitripa College currently offers two degree programs: the Master of Arts in Buddhist Studies (MA – 44 credits) and the Master of Divinity (MDiv – 72 credits). Our programs are particularly geared toward students seeking an in-depth and critical understanding of Buddhist thought in the context of both traditional and academic scholarship, coupled with contemplative experience of the Buddhist path, and yet is open to students of any faith and academic backgrounds. The curricula are designed according to our Three Pillars: Scholarship, Meditation, and Service. Maitripa College curricula uniquely integrate these through rigorous academic study, contemplative practice, and community service requirements, to offer a graduate level education grounded in Buddhist thought that can serve as a basis for students’ active engagement in and benefit to society.
