Program Description:

Castle in Ireland
Join Professor Larry Martinez in this online experience exploring the paranormal in the UK & Ireland!

This course will evaluate the psychological theories, phenomena, and explanations for paranormal experiences including but not limited to ghosts, possessions, aliens, demons, out of body experiences, and psychic/telekinetic abilities.

In this class, we will explore the psychological research relating to the paranormal, with a particular emphasis on the psychological explanations for such phenomena. This course is designed to examine how psychologists have conducted research with regard to such phenomena and consider the real-world impact of this research. Discussions will be candid and on sensitive and controversial topics. Remember, we will have a variety of perspectives in class and I expect everyone to be respectful and courteous in the discussion boards. Importantly, the goal of this class is not to change your mind or make you believe a certain thing (or not believe a certain thing) - the purpose is to educate you about how psychologists interpret paranormal phenomena.
