Nalanda University is planning to introduce Vedic Studies along with starting some short-term executive programs on subjects like Mindfulness and Yoga.
"Within the existing schools, we will create new departments," Vice Chancellor Sunaina Singh said in a statement.
"For instance, in the School of Buddhist Studies, Philosophy and Comparative Religions we plan to introduce Vedic Studies, Indian Spiritual Tradition and Peace Studies," Singh further added.
West always looks to India for solutions in intellectual and spiritual matters and Nalanda University can act as a bridge between India, Asia and Asia-Pacific countries.
"Indian knowledge systems have to be explored," Singh said.
According to Singh, the University needs to build more schools and departments for academic excellence.
"The School of Linguistics and Literature and The School of International Relations and Peace Studies will be the next schools that we will focus on."
The university is located in a Buddhist Pilgrim town of Rajgir in Bihar's Nalanda district, and begun its first academic session I September 2014 on a makeshift campus.
