Georgia: Dr. Christine Simmonds-Moore recently joined the psychology faculty at the University of West Georgia as an Assistant Professor of Psychology. Parapsychology first came to UWG when Dr. Bill Roll was based there. As a result, the university has a long history with regard to this topic, which is supported by an excellent collection of journals and books. It is now possible to study parapsychology at UWG alongside a number of other interesting topics related to humanistic and transpersonal psychology. Courses exploring parapsychology are offered at the undergraduate and graduate (masters levels). The master’s program at West Georgia focusses on humanistic and transpersonal psychology. The psychology department also offer an Integrative Health Studies Certificate Program and a PhD program (on Consciousness and Society ) at West Georgia, and as such, it is possible for students to focus on a parapsychology related topic for masters theses and doctoral dissertations.
