Sign Me Up! Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse a/k/a the course they didn't offer when I was in college

How many times have you sat around with friends and family and discussed how you might react to your favorite televised catastrophe? The topic comes up a lot at the Munder household and I always decide I simply don't have as strong a desire to live as those folks on AMC's The Walking Dead or say, Ripley from the movie Alien. But how would you know for sure?

Welcome to Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse — Catastrophes and Human Behavior an online summer class offering at MSU. The class lasts seven weeks and blends traditional coursework with online forums and its hallmark activity: a zombie apocalypse simulation.

"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 wonder if I can audit the course?
