The paranormal is a fascinating subject for many people, both believers and skeptics. The first thing many people think when the topic of ghost hunting comes up is the various shows on television. Although they are interesting, there is much more to paranormal investigating than what you see on television. If you have an interest in spirits or even want to learn more about debunking claims, a paranormal investigation class is a great way to learn the details involved in the process of hunting ghosts. Here are five colleges that offer classes to learn about ghost hunting.
