Take Your Paranormal Training and/or Experience to the Next Level
Accelerated Metaphysics PhD Degree Program
Despite the general critical opinion of paranormal research among the scientific community, paranormal science including Ufology is perhaps among the noblest of callings because it directly impacts the human condition more than most other fields of study. Paranormal research has the potential to make life-changing discoveries about human existence, extraterrestrial life, and our place in the Cosmos. For example, proof that we are not alone in the universe would be one of the greatest discoveries of all time and have immense meaning for our lives. UFO research involves nearly all metaphysical concepts.
The Ufology Metaphysics Degree covers all aspects of Ufology and abduction research giving students a broad base of knowledge. This course covers the same information as the Paranormal Science / Parapsychology degree, so students are cross-trained all aspects of paranormal research. Students who wish to conduct UFO research and investigations can choose from the specializations below. The curriculum for all specializations in this category is the same with the exception that students who wish to specialize in Ufology and Abduction Research (as opposed to Ufology alone) must also take Course MHs.M6: Holistic Meditation, Visualization, and Focus, and Course MHs.M13: Metaphysical Hypnosis (for non-remedial purposes). This means 14 courses are required for the Master's degree instead of the usual 12 courses (thus, additional tuition will be necessary for two additional courses and can be paid at the time that you take the extra course). No Hypnosis Practitioner’s Certificate will be issued unless Course MHs.M8: Transpersonal Counseling and Coaching is also taken.
This specialization is excellent for students who desire to conduct paranormal and/or UFO investigations and research, conduct alien abduction research, start and lead a paranormal investigation team, write books on paranormal topics, present lectures and talks in the paranormal field, and more.
