What were some of your highlights of attending Carleton University?

The Master in Religion and Public Life has opened a door of opportunities for me. I always miss my cohorts and professors who were so supportive during my Master’s.

What are you up to now and what aspects of the MA experience have gone with you? 

I thought I could stop being a student after having finished my Master Degree in Religion and Public Life, but the aspiration of having higher education motivated me to apply for a Ph.D. program in Political Science at Carleton University.I am so excited as I received full funding to pursue this program. Having a Master in Religion and Public Life at Carleton gave me, as a Buddhist monk, more credentials when I teach Buddhism to my devotees as well as to Canadian senior fellows who take Buddhism classes in Learning In Retirement Program offered at Carleton University.
