I have long tried to find a reliable source of information about how someone could become a scholar of Sikhism, but to no avail. What kind of degrees should I get if I wanted to become an expert on Sikhism. I was considering getting a masters in theology, and a bachelors in both history and linguistics, but the problem with that is most theology and history classes probably won't be focused on Sikhism. Are there any colleges that offer legitimate degrees on Sikhism (theology, history, linguistics, counceling, etc)? What exactly are the responsibilities involved in being a gyani? Some people use granthi and gyani interchangeably.
