Investigate Animals as Yet Undescribed by Science
Accelerated Metaphysics PhD Degree Program
Cryptozoology is the study of undiscovered animals, that is, animals as yet undescribed by science. Students will learn about recent discoveries as well as the sheer magnitude of the estimated number of undiscovered species. Students will also learn about taxonomy and classification, research techniques, conducting field investigations, equipment, and working with other researchers. Students will study and research their choice of a reported cryptid with a focus on objective, grounded research. Evidence analysis is also covered thereby equipping students to analyze photos, videos, and other evidence that might assist in scientifically describing a reported animal. This specialization will give the student the foundation and framework to explore, investigate, and research reports of unknown animals that have been seen by locals for years—sometimes, hundreds or even thousands of years. As an alternative, students may choose to specialize in “Hominology,” a branch of Cryptozoology which focuses on the study of primates or hominids such as Bigfoot as opposed to all types of cryptids.
