If you really want to do this, and you really want to devote a degree to it, I'd go w/a traditional type of biology degree. Like a tradtional
"Zoology" type degree. Perhaps specialize in endangered or extinct species, and perhaps have some paleontology for good measure. Once a person is
educated enough, they can call themselves any title, and people will simply accept it. ;-) (Psychiatric Epidemiologist comes to mind. . .)
I think cryptozoology is not accepted by most universities to the extent that they would offer cryptozoology classes. It would be kind of like a
class in Alien Technology Engineering.
This is not a matter of what you or I believe in, it's a matter of what the general public believes, and how much money a university could make by
offering such classes. Many people would not spend money on things like this, whether they are real or not, simply because these same people are so
convinced that such things are not real. Therefore, in their minds, they would be buying a fake product.
