Course overview

Although we provide a separate, extended Advanced Diploma in Parapsychology, we recognise the need for a shorter but intellectually satisfying course for those who wish to study the subject in a more concise format. This new Diploma course uses a single university-level textbook that is separate from the books required from the Advanced course. This Diploma may be taken on its own, or as a preparation for the Advanced Diploma in Parapsychology.

Topics include:

History of parapsychological research
ESP – phenomenology and research
Psychokinesis
Psi theories
Survival after death
Poltergeists
Near-Death and Out-Of-Body experiences
Apparitions
Reincarnation
Belief in the paranormal and related beliefs
What use is parapsychology?
Is parapsychology scientific?

Required Text:

Irwin and Watt, An Introduction to Parapsychology.  McFarland, 5th Edition, 2007.
