Two online Parapsychology Courses are open for registration:

Advanced Field Investigations with Loyd Auerbach, M.S. (Mondays)

Mondays, February 18-April 8, 2019 LIVE @ 8:30-10pm

In this course, students will explore the topics of field investigations more deeply, including methods related to specific models of paranormal phenomena from a scientific perspective of a parapsychologist. Learn how to handle field research, issues related to public haunts vs. private home cases, and methods for exploring evidence and analyzing data to reach a conclusion.


Qualitative Research Methods with John G. Kruth, M.S.

Wednesdays, February 20-April 10, 2019 LIVE @ 7-8:30pm

Psi phenomena typically occur in spontaneous situations or in environments that do not transfer to a controlled laboratory environment. Qualitative research methods provide a way to explore this type of event in a controlled scientific manner. This course is designed for the serious student and qualifies for many certificate programs. It is strongly recommended that students have taken the Rhine “Research Methods” course or have previous experience with research methodology.

While students are encouraged to attend the eight live presentations in a course, recordings will be available for registered students unable to join the live stream, making it more convenient for adults with busy schedules. Students will also be able to interact in the classroom forums, ask instructors questions, and receive feedback.
