College & Department of Buddhist Studies



二OO六年佛光大學佛教學院承教育部核准設立,開綜合大學申請設立佛教學院
的首例,將過去僅止於寺院、私人興辦、不具學位的佛學院,正式推向高等教育
體系。過去國內約有一百三十多個佛學院、基督書院、神學院、佛學研究所、
一貫道書院等宗教教育機構,皆向內政部許可立案招生,但學歷一直未能獲教育
部認可。

      
Fo Guang University's College of Buddhist Studies was officially recognized by the
Taiwan Ministry of Education in 2006. It is the first specialist Buddhist Studies
Department established at a full university in Taiwan under new legislation which
restricted Buddhist Colleges and the like to monastery and seminary institutions outside
of recognized universities, enabling full academic accreditation. Previously, there were
some 130 Buddhist colleges, various Christian seminaries and theology centers,
and Daoist institutes and the like in Taiwan. However, none of them were accredited
 within the Taiwan Ministry of Education University qualification system. Now, this
has changed!

       二OOO年十一月十五日,教育部召開宗教教育相關會議,考慮將神佛學院
等宗教研修機構納入高等教育體系,進而在二OO四年四月七日總統令頒布修正
私校法第九條。法令的鬆綁,開放私立大學校院可設立宗教研修學院,並授予宗
教學位,使國內宗教教育機構正式納入高等教育體制,有助於提高台灣宗教研究
在國際間的能見度,過去數十年來各組織團體辦學成果固然豐碩,但以一己之力
培育人才,在師資、教材及課程規劃則稍有侷限,結合高等教育體制及資源後,
不但有助於提昇佛學人才素質與知識層次,以宗教教育輔以學術研究、社會人才
的培養,象徵佛教對於巨變時代所不可取代的教育任務,更開台灣教育史上之新
氣象。

       The process began in 2000, when the Ministry opened discussion with various

religious groups on higher education. In 2004, new legislation established that universities

can now have studies programs specific to a single religion as opposed to the previous

system of more general religious studies. This change was to aid in Taiwan academia to have

 a more international approach. In the past decades, many religious groups have had great

success in the areas of education, developing human potential. However, due to the past

situation, they were restricted in terms of faculty, teaching materials and curriculum planning.

After the change to allow such specialized religious study at university level, not only will this

raise the standard of Buddhist studies in Taiwan, it will bring about a greater standard of

scholarship to all areas of religious education and be of great benefit to society at large.

This change will usher in a new age for Buddhist education in Taiwan.
