Actually I think it could be a relevant option course in university as a psychology study. It would depend how the course was offered but certainly the study of the cultural effect of UFOs wouldn't be out of place. And I think Scientology is probably covered along with other religions in the religious studies programs.

For those who don't believe it would be considered a waste of funding. And then finding some one qualified to instruct on the subject would be difficult I would think.
