Course Description

LoydLogoThis course is a deeper exploration of the topics covered in the Field Investigations course. Students who are taking this course for a grade are required to have taken the Field Investigations course from the Rhine, or taken the Ghost Hunting course from HCH, or established yourself as a knowledgeable student of parapsychology with the instructor, or passed a quiz on field investigations (provided by Loyd Auerbach :

See note below for those wanting to take the course without a grade.

In this course, students will explore the topics of field investigations more deeply, including methods related to specific models of paranormal phenomena from a scientific perspective of a parapsychologist. In addition, this course will discuss the history of paranormal field research, provide details on dealing with clients and finding resolutions during investigations, discuss issues related to “public haunts” vs. private home cases, and provide more complex methods for exploring the evidence and analyzing data to reach a conclusion. Technology used in investigations* will be reviewed along with EVPs, and psychic, mediums, and other sensitives. The technology will be evaluated at a basic level for best use in both private homes and public site investigations.

Finally, this course will examine the psychology of perception and interpretation of activity and how non-paranormal explanations can apply in investigative circumstances. Parapsychology laboratory findings will be integrated into the course materials to explore how the laboratory studies apply to field investigations.

To satisfy pre-requisites, email Loyd Auerbach at  If you’re not taking the course for a grade, there are no prerequisites, though the Introduction to Parapsychology course and the Field Investigations course are both recommended.

*For an in-depth assessment of technology and field investigations, the Rhine Education Center offers a 4-week course called Paranormal Phenomena: EVP, ITC, and Other Technologies Used to Investigate the Paranormal.
