What is the name of the science that deals with ghosts and ghost huntings?
I love Ghost Adventures and might want to go int his field when I go to college. But before I go, I need to know the name of it before I start lookin for it because I won’t be able to find it because I do not know the name.

There is no science dedicated to ghost hunting; the closest you get is fringe sciences (sciences delving into theoretical possibilities: space travel, advanced dark matter physics, reanimation, so on) and crypto-zoology (the search for and study of animals who are thought to be extinct/nonliving or nonreal).

It’s called “Paranormal” or “Alternative Science”
There is a couple sections for this on Y!A btw. Just look under “Sciences & Math” and you’ll find it.
