Oh, those have existed for I long time, but not in any universities or civilian places, if you know what I mean. They weren't called courses in Ufology either, at least not in my day.
I heard from some guys once who attended lectures like the one I went to, only they went on longer, and even had films and whatnot, basically being told "these are the types of things you might see".
It wasn't called Ufology way back then, though, but more like UAO's--Unidentified Aerial Objects and things like that. One of these films showed the object as it seemed to materialize and de-materialize near a power plant and things even more unusual than that.
I won't relay all the things I heard over the years because I didn't see any of that myself and couldn't prove it anyway.
