Students in the MA in Hindu Studies program at Graduate Theological Union will study the multidimensional ways in which the Hindu ethos functions, its specific characteristics of non-exclusivity and celebration of internal diversity, and its history of reciprocal illumination with other faith traditions on the Indian subcontinent, as well as its tradition of self-reflective reinterpretation and reform.
In accordance with the interreligious environment of the GTU, the Hindu ethos will be studied in dialogue with other religious traditions in order to deepen understanding of the cross fertilization and profound relationships amongst cultures and faiths while honoring the distinctiveness of each religion.
