The University of California, Irvine is offering a free online course beginning on October 14, 2013 based on a study of the AMC television series, The Walking Dead. The eight-week course, entitled Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead, will span key science and survival themes and will be taught by four faculty members: Dr. Joanne Christopherson, Dr. Michael Dennin, Dr. Sarah Eichhorn and Dr. Zuzana Bic.

The topics include:

  • Maslow’s hierarchy of needs—is survival just about being alive?
  • Social order and structures—from the farm and the prison to Woodbury
  • Social identity, roles, and stereotyping—as shown through leaders like Rick and the Governor
  • The role of public health in society—from the CDC to local community organizations
  • The spread of infectious disease and population modeling—swarm!
  • The role of energy and momentum in damage control—how can you best protect yourself?
  • Nutrition in a post-apocalyptic world—are squirrels really good for you?
  • Managing stress in disaster situations—what’s the long-term effect of always sleeping with one eye open?

Prepare yourself for the upcoming zombie apocalypse and earn credits at the same time! Enrollment is open now.
