If you are looking for a degree from an accredited college that will set you apart from others in a highly-competitive job field, you might consider one in "Alien Hunting".
The University of Edinburgh is now offering students an opportunity to be certified in alien hunting with a new five-week course titled "Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life" available as part of its online education program.
Even better, the course is free and open to anyone who is interested in participating. The course will be taught by ex-NASA employee and Oxford scholar Professor Charles Cockell. The first two weeks of the course will focus on how life can originate and survive in even the most hostile of environments before moving on to the search of extraterrestrial life on other planets and the possibility of "First Contact" with other alien life forms in the universe.
