Beginning this summer, Michigan State University is helping people answer that question.
MSU's School of Social Work begins offering a new online course called "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse — Catastrophes and Human Behavior" this summer.
And before you dismiss the course as silly, its instructor says students will actually learn much more than personal defense against the brain-craving undead.
"We are using the idea of a zombie apocalypse to attract attention to the important research and science on the topic of 'Catastrophes and Human Behavior,'" Glenn Stutzky, an MSU social work instructor and creator of the course.
The class lasts seven weeks and blends traditional coursework with online forums and its hallmark activity: a zombie apocalypse simulation.
In that simulation, students will be placed into survivor groups and charged with conjunctively developing plans for surviving the zombie pandemic. And that's just the first week of class.
"Though the topic is serious and worthy of academic study, the challenges presented in surviving a hypothetical zombie pandemic have real-world applications," Stutzky said. "After all, zombies make everything more interesting."
I for one am hoping that this kind of class picks up in popularity around nationwide colleges so I can FINALLY get some college credit taking a class that I actually enjoy going to.
That way I wont have to troll my teacher as much when I'm late to class. Because I'd never want to be late to class!
