Explore What It Means to Be Fully Human
WASC accredited Dharma Realm Buddhist University is set apart because of its focus on classics from both the Asian and Western traditions. Classes are small, with between 5 and 15 students. There are no majors or concentrations; instead, students study an ambitious cross section of philosophy, literature, music, science, mathematics, and languages. Texts are not just read, but they are also explored in practice for what they mean in daily life.
DRBU is a place that welcomes a diversity of experience and thought and is dedicated to developing the full human potential
A Community Culture of Ethics and Care
At DRBU, students gain opportunities to engage in hands-on learning through student activities, volunteering, and service scholarship. They develop leadership and teamwork skills as well as an appreciation for the personal, social, and natural world that are invaluable aspects of a DRBU education. Merely taking part in such a community can be one of the most beneficial and inspiring experiences among all the opportunities at DRBU.
I've had insights from spiritual practice that would have been difficult to arrive at in a classroom, yet the classroom learning gives me a rich, conceptual framework that helps explain what I experience.
