UFO Studies
"The actual sightings of UFOs (unidentified flying objects) and interest in the paranormal are at an all time high. An insurmountable amount of evidence is available from many resources including eye witness accounts, photographs, paranormal studies, and pilots and aviation experts.
The goal of this online course is to study some of these UFO phenomena around the world, present UFO Case Studies as accurately as possible, and encourage students to contemplate the idea that we have been visited from another planet by intelligent life."
