Question by caligurllovya: Where can I get a degree in parapsychology?
I’ve doing some research on different careers,and parapsychology just seems right for me.
I’m just not really sure where i could get a degree in the field. Can some people help out????

The only accredited (that means real) university in the world still offering a parapsychology degree is the University of Edinburugh in Scotland. Here’s their program. http://www.koestler-parapsychology.psy.ed.ac.uk/
It’s not offered by US schools because frankly parapsychologists have never found anything. As soon as you apply science to the paranormal, it disappears – there’s nothing to study, nothing with positive results anyway. And that’s why – and this point is important – no one is hiring parapsychologists. This simply isn’t a real field of study. How about just getting a psychology degree in stead? Either way it’s 8-12 years of college for the PhD, which is what you need to do research, so you might as well get a degree that’s employable and then do whatever you want with it in your spare time.
