Fundamental Approaches to the Study of UAP

multiple courses

- ongoing throughout the year -

The Society is developing a number of online courses on a variety of topics which treat the UAP enigma from different academic perspectives.


These online courses will vary in form, from the more traditional undergraduate-style courses, to the more advanced graduate-style lecture seminars that meet once per week for a few hours. Semester-long courses will be developed which meet regularly during either a traditional 16-week or accelerated 8-week rotation.


Each course will have a unique focus on the most fundamental aspects (methodological, social and political, epistemological, and ontological) of the study of UAP relevant to the disciplinary approach adopted by the course lecturer. Each course, the, will not only study UAP themselves from a particular academic perspective; it will also concern itself with how the phenomenon ought to be studied from that perspective.


As such our courses will highlight more of the meta-theoretic, reflective questions that must be faced if the study of UAP is to be academically serious, rigorous and productive.


The lecturers we choose have in their work specifically demonstrated a concern for the kind of academic and scholarly rigor that the Society seeks to promote in UAP Studies moving forward.
