ARUP 326 - Explrng Buddhst Himlayas India

Unit(s): 4

This 3-week study abroad course with 12-hour pre-departure class meetings will explore the history, culture, and religion of Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India through reading materials, reciprocal service-learning opportunities at monastic and non-monastic institutions, lectures by local specialists and activists, conversations with Buddhist monastics and hermits about their beliefs and practices, observing cultural and religious festivities, and visiting sacred and historical sites. Through these learning resources, students will learn how Tibetan Buddhist culture continues to shape the lives of this largely immigrant community, and how individuals in turn give new meanings to their religion and culture in an era of globalization.
