A free course on The Walking Dead?

A social and scientific study of The Walking Dead and what we can learn from it, a free course you can do online.  According to the website, 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?

It’s not exactly how to survive the zombie apocalypse, but sounds interesting nonetheless.  I would totally take this if I wasn’t already getting my Master’s degree in Leadership and Professional Advancement.  If you want to check it out for yourself click here to go to the website.
