Survival Class of the Week: “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead”

The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead TV show now has a university course that discusses survival.

Every once in a while, someone comes up with an irresistible idea.

Take for instance, UC Irvine and AMC.

Who’s stroke of brilliance was it that transformed the (sometimes) boring study of epidemiology,  social frameworks, and mathematics into a socially relevant and action packed university level class?

I have no idea.

I just know that I’m in.

Come on, who can resist zombies?

Post-apocalyptic survival?

Team competition?

If you are interested, you had better get a move on–the season premier of ‘The Walking Dead’ starts tonight at 9 pm Eastern.

The class begins tomorrow!

I must confess–I’ve never seen a single episode of the show.  It looks like a Netflix search is in order!
