Certificate in History, Law, Politics and Technology of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena


Continuous collaboration and focused public pressure for responsible disclosure


All beings have an inherent value and deserve to be treated with respect and dignity


The emergence and evolution of consciousness is a common and ongoing phenomena

An Introduction

As part of our work on the issue of the UFO (UAP) phenomenon and the existence of Extraterrestrial Life, our New Paradigm Institute, in partnership with Ubiquity University, is offering an Academic Certificate Program in “History, Law, Politics and Technology of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena” that can be transferred to Ubiquity University for a graduate Master and/or PhD degree in “Extraterrestrial Studies.” This is a groundbreaking partnership and marks the first academic degree program in Extraterrestrial Studies in the world.

Courses of the Program

February 29, March 7, March 14, March 21 – 2024

This 4 week course will provide a comprehensive history and overview of UAP development with a focus on what we can take as facts concerning the most closely held secret in history. After nearly 80 years of coverup and manipulation of the publicly available information, the most important thing for all of us is to understand what the actual facts are concerning UFOs and Non Human Intelligences

This lecture series consists of four, 90-minute classes at 11:00 AM on Thursdays, Pacific time

March 28, April 4, April 11,
April 18 – 2024

This course is the second of a two course “orientation” program intended to provide a solid foundation for future learning about the UFO/UAP/ET issue. These two courses are “core” courses that every student needs to take, along with Richard Dolan’s two courses, in order to complete a Certificate and enter the ET Studies Program jointly offered by New Paradigm Institute and Ubiquity University

This lecture series consists of four, 90-minute classes at 11:00 AM on Thursdays, Pacific time

April 25, May 2, May 9,
May 16 – 2024

This 4 week course will cover the two volume book Dolan has written on UFOs and the National Security State which details year by year, beginning in 1945, the number of UFOs sighted. We will also dive into the evidence gathered, the cover ups engaged in by the US and other governments, the people marginalized and persecuted for insisting on the reality of UFOs. Finally we will discuss the inexorable momentum toward UFO Disclosure.

May 23, May 30, June 6,
June 13 – 2024

The 4 week course looks at speculations Dolan and others have made concerning who the aliens are, what they are doing here, why they came, and how they are perceiving humankind. The course will also speculate on human affairs “after disclosure,” which is the subject of Dolan’s recent books A.D. After Disclosure and Alien Agendas.

The underlying education obtained through our Certificate Program will:


Familiarise you concerning the history of UFO sightings and interactions since 1945 and the political response on the part of the U.S. Congress and US President to the stunning public testimony of officials from deep within the U.S. Defense Department and Intelligence Community finally acknowledging the possession by the U.S. Government of “Non-Human Spacecraft” and “biological evidence of a Non-Human Intelligence” that appears to be the source of UFO (UAP) vehicles.


Enable you to increase your awareness of the latest information acquired in cosmology, quantum physics, and subtle human bio-physics pertaining to UAP.


Understand the various worldviews that shape people’s perceptions of the UFO phenomenon and motivate them to take particular actions concerning whether to disclose or not disclose information on this issue. What one believes about the world determines how one acts in the world.


Empower you to take action in your local area to encourage government leaders to support full disclosure of the evidence in the government’s possession concerning UFOs. Active citizen action is an essential part of the effort toward full disclosure.


Prepare you to transfer your Academic Certificate to Ubiquity University for full credit toward a graduate Masters and/or PhD degree in “Extraterrestrial Studies.” Once accepted by Ubiquity, you will complete a Ubiquity Certificate on ”Extraterrestrial Awareness and Communication” and write a dissertation for your chosen degree.

Academic Certificate Program

Our New Paradigm Institute is offering this Academic Certificate Program with Ubiquity in light of recent legislation by the US Congress, signed into law by President Biden in December 2023, mandating that all Government agencies and Government contracting corporations turn over all their UFO related material and information to the National Archives of the Library of Congress with the specific intent to disseminate the information to the public. UFOs are now officially referred to as “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP).

The new legislation initiates a disclosure process to reveal to the world much of the information that has been concealed by the U.S. Government and contracting defense aerospace corporations about The UFO (UAP) phenomenon since 1945.

We Are Not Alone

This is arguably the most consequential legislation in history. The US Government is now in the process of releasing to the world incontrovertible evidence revealing its possession of non-human origin spacecraft and also non-human origin biological evidence retrieved from these vehicles that demonstrate conclusively that we are not alone in the universe, that Extraterrestrial Intelligences actually exist, and that such non-human intelligent species are currently present and operating on planet Earth. 

The UAP Disclosure

The New Paradigm Institute will interface with the US Congress as it collects all available material on UAP in the possession of Government agencies and defense corporations and releases it to the public. Its Washington, DC office will help facilitate the release of this information and also work to catalyze public debate and concerted action designed to ensure benign and mutually beneficial contact with any and all Non-Human species associated with UAP and with any potential galactic systems and values represented by these Beings.

We intend to build a global coalition of groups that will participate in releasing the information with the shared collective intent of ensuring that the narrative that emerges about the ETs is positive and constructive.

The eyes of the world

Humanity has now come to our “ET Moment.”

By joining this program, you will become part of the first wave of human beings dedicated to enabling humanity to enter its ET Moment in a spirit of open heartedness toward all beings, whether terrestrial or extraterrestrial. Humanity’s ET Moment makes it imperative that we have peace on Earth between humans, the human family, and the larger planetary ecology. Only by uniting with each other and with our Mother Earth will humanity be able to fully realize the potential of interacting with the larger galactic civilizations now being officially revealed to be present on our Earth.

The goal of the New Paradigm Institute is to provide credible and responsible information to the public about the UFO/UAP phenomenon. NPI attorney Dan Sheehan and UFO historian Richard Dolan, experts in this field, are developing classes for the public on the laws, policies, and history of this phenomenon. 

The Romero Institute is contracting with the globally accredited Ubiquity University to carry NPI’s classes on their platform for credentials – MAs, and PhDs. Any income that accrues to NPI from these classes will support the nonprofit work on behalf of the public.
