Dear Colleagues,


The Mangalam Research Center for Buddhist Languages, in Berkeley, will be offering two language intensives this summer, one in classical Sanskrit and one in literary Tibetan. Both intensives run for seven weeks, from June 11-July 27. Each intensive program is the equivalent of a first-year undergraduate course, and will prepare students to enroll in second-year language courses.  Each course meets 4 hours a day, 5 days a week.


The Sanskrit course will be taught by David Mellins, Ph.D., and the Tibetan course will be taught by Alberto Todeschini, Ph.D. Dr. Siglinde Dietz, visiting scholar in residence at MRC this summer, will oversee both programs.


Application forms and information about costs, housing options, etc. are available at Please note that the application deadlines have been extended to April 9, 2012. notification of acceptance will be sent out by April 23, 2012.

Apologies for cross-postings.
