New! Buddhist Studies Certificate

Beginning this spring, UW-Waukesha is excited to announce our new Buddhist Studies Certificate with instructor Michael Mullooly! Many students have been asking and we are proud to begin class offerings this spring. From its roots in Asia twenty-five centuries ago, Buddhism still exists as one of the major spiritual forces in today’s world. Its compelling insights into human existence offer an ancient yet relevant alternative to the materialism of the modern age. The Buddhist Studies program offers a solid grounding in the Buddhist path. Knowledge of this path can assist mental health workers, religious professionals, artists, educators, and wisdom seekers in their endeavors.
