SALT LAKE CITY -- Ghost-busting is one of the more popular classes offered at the Granite Peaks Learning Center, and it always has a waiting list. In fact, it's so popular administrators had to add a class to meet with demand.

Adult Education Coordinator Ken Kapptie said, "Just in this last week, we put together another class, another run of it."

Kapptie said recent cable shows like "Ghosthunters" are fueling its popularity.

"[It's] Tuesday nights, five sessions, 6:30 to 8:30, and it's $45," he said.

So, how does the learning center decide whether or not a ghost-busting class will be taught in the first place?

"It's usually a proposal from somebody in the community that has an interesting idea or concept for what we consider non-credit courses," Kapptie explained.

Some people may think a class like this is bizarre, but it might not be the weirdest class proposed to the center.

"We have proposals on a regular basis that at first glance appear to be a bit far out there. This last week, I had a proposal land on my desk, 'How to survive a zombie attack,'" he said.

The zombie class has not been approved yet.
