Ufology Courses for UFO Studies & UFO Research

Ufology courses, UFO Studies

There are several courses in Ufology that might be suitable to kickstart your UFO studies and UFO research. In this post I list those currently available.

In the interests of transparency it’s only fair to point out that the first in this list is one that I created myself and published early in 2021. The second is one that I completed in 2019 and which I promote on UfologyWeb.com on behalf of Richard Dolan. The rest of those listed are ones that are advertised online and to which I have no connection.

Critics of Courses in UFO Studies

Some people are suspicious of courses in these subjects and see them as a means for the course publishers to make a fast buck out of what they assume is the gullibility of those who enroll. Some also say courses are not only necessary but a time-wasting diversion from the apprenticeship that should be served in the form of months spent reading books, journals, and articles, watching hour after hour of videos and films, and scrolling through countless posts on #UFOtwitter and online forums.

My answer to these criticism is to point out that:

  1. Some people prefer the gradual and structured approach of and online course during which they complete lessons, lectures, and segments, communicate with an instructor, and finish with a sense of satisfaction of a task completed with diligence. It’s not for everyone but there’s no single right way to approach the subject.
  2. Online courses in UFO studies can save time by introducing the candidate to subjects and by teaching the salient points of the history of UFO sightings and close encounters, without the distractions so often found online in the form of advertising and other diversions.
  3. Courses that include quizzes and assignments can test the candidates knowledge and reinforce the learning.
  4. The completion of a structured course can provide the motivation that leads to fresh UFO reasearch that in turn generates new insights that, when published in a website, blog, journal, or video, add to the collective pool of knowledge.
  5. It’s a bit patronising to assume that candidates for courses in UFO studies are gullible and it’s also cynical to assume that the publishers of courses are not acting with integrity. Let people make up their own minds and review them accordingly.

With all that said, here is the list.
