Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Psychology
Parapsychology via distance learning
This Doctor Ph.D. Degree examines the reasons that made scientists, philosophers, and theologians disdain parapsychology. It builds upon a postmodern philosophy that allows the parapsychological evidence to be taken as a serious discipline. Also, it identifies several types of repeatable phenomena that support the existence of extrasensory perception. Using a non-dualistic analysis of the mind and the brain, this program investigates different types of psychic evidence: messages from mediums; apparitions; cases of possession and reincarnation; and out-of-body experiences.
The Doctor Ph.D. Degree online via distance learning offers students the highest level of specialization a discipline can offer. More info...
