Paranormal Investigator. That is what I've wanted my career to be ever since I was about 8 years old (and had a morbid fear of ghosts). I am now nearing graduation from H.S. and aeronautical engineering is my second interest which may be the only thing that I can actually pursue. I am simply hoping that maybe someone out there would know that there is a way that I can make a career out of paranormal investigation. Is there any classes out there for it? at colleges, or otherwise?

I would recommend Aeronautical Engineering first, THEN Paranormal Investigation as a hobby. Because you'll need the education and the money if you want to start your own Paranormal Research/Investigative group.

There are online colleges for Paranormal investigation. There are parapsychology courses at various colleges. (But you must have a Master Degree in Psychology before you can take any of those courses in most cases)

You can't make a career out of it at first, because even very seasoned Investigators still have their day jobs. They are all truely non-profit.

The few that were able to quit their day jobs was because they wrote books (or had someone write it for them) on their experiances.

it's good to go into an Engineering field first. The education will keep you level headed and you will not be afraid of the unseen.

I'm studying engineering, although a different branch (electrical) In my opinion, all forms of engineering are great; I probably would have loved almost all of them. I think I'd go with taking the Aero. Eng. degree and do the paranormal stuff on the weekends or something as a hobby, like godzilla suggested.

I don't know what engineering is like at whatever school you plan to attend, but in my program I was able to take several arts courses for credit, and I took a bunch of history (4 courses in it) since that is one of my interests, but I could just as easily have substituted psychology instead, had I wanted to. That way, you can at least get the introduction to pyschology down, and hopefully learn enough in a classroom setting that you can proceed to study on your own effectively, since you will understand the basics already. You could also try sitting in on a couple of introductory psych courses (the junior ones are usually 100s of people in a massive ampitheater, they will never know you aren't registered!)
