The zombie apocalypse is coming, that’s a fact. And if you want to be prepared you should probably enroll in Michigan State University’s new course, “Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse: Catastrophes & Human Behavior.”
The course, according to Time Magazine, focuses on how humans behave when faced with plagues or other catastrophic events. The course will cover the hypothetical questions concerning a zombie uprising, but will also look at how to deal with earthquakes, plagues, falling meteors and other doomsday scenarios.
According to the course catalog:
“The question at the center of this course is, “How do humans behave in catastrophic times?” Does their behavior change in the midst of trying to survive and the decisions they face? We will examine major catastrophic events from the past, look to potential future events, and consider a concept for increasing our chances of survival.”
So if there is a zombie apocalypse, is our only chance of salvation resting in the hands of MSU alum. Thankfully, no. The course will be available through the university’s Lifelong Education program which is open to everyone who meets the requirements (mainly a high school diploma).
The course will be taught by Glenn Stutzky, who summed up the program to TIME.com by saying: “In a time of catastrophe, some people find their humanity; other lose theirs.”
Here’s a video about the new course.
