A Diploma in Parapsychology will be awarded to students who have successfully completed a significant amount of study in Parapsychology (i.e., 4 Certificate Courses). The Foundations in Parapsychology course (SCOP101) is the first required course for the Diploma. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be awarded a Certificate in Foundations of Parapsychology from the School of Parapsychology.
Additional Certificate Courses will be offered at a future date.

This course is designed to meet the learning needs of students new to parapsychology research. The course sessions are intended to develop students' knowledge of a wide variety of milestones in the history of parapsychology, various approaches to phenomena, a number of theoretical issues as well as the requisite practical skills involved in evidence assessment, basic analysis, and writing up of research. Students will be introduced to methods of data collection (interviews, observation and basic experimentation) and encouraged to engage in practical tasks to complete their understanding of a variety of issues. The structure of the course is a mixture of tutor presentations, illustration through case examples, critical examinations and self-test activities, and reflexive questions.

ZENER CARDS B&W

This course is the conclusion of a natural progression in levels of learning about Parapsychology. Whilst Foundations gave students exactly that, Foundations of Parapsychology, the Intermediate course encouraged students to become more independent in their learning through the assignment (a Research Proposal) and also in taking the topics further and in more detail (e.g. Presentiment). This Advanced Parapsychology course develops the students' knowledge of a wide variety of parapsychology topics even further. It tackles topics you would not see in any online or University course. Topics such as Theories of Psi, ASCs, OBEs and all aspects of the Survival Hypothesis are presented to students. In addition there is still the promotion of critical thinking as there is a need for students to build upon their knowledge from previous courses in order to critically answer higher lever questions about these new topics. 

START DATE:

MONDAY 1ST JANUARY (INDUCTION WEEK)

MONDAY 8TH JANUARY (CLASSES START)

The course aims to provide students with a more advanced understanding of fundamental principles of parapsychology research whilst also facilitating the development of critical thinking, critical assessment, and also the conducting and writing up of research. By course completion, students should be able to identify and use various methods, evaluate evidence critically, and conduct independent research.
