Traditions of Yoga and Meditation
This programme offers an in-depth introduction to the yogic and meditational techniques and doctrines of India, Tibet, China and Japan within the historical and cultural context of their formation. Furthermore, it explores the nature of spiritual experience that arises from yoga and meditation through a cross-cultural, inter-regional perspective.
Minimum Upper 2nd Class Honours (or equivalent). However, due consideration is given to the applicants� individual profiles, and to the fact that great potential for the successful undertaking of the academic study of religions is not necessarily acknowledged or certified through the applicant�s academic qualifications. Interviews can be arranged for applicants who do not meet the minimum entrance requirements, and early contact with academic members of staff is generally encouraged.
