If only they could offer it online

Coming soon, zombies will be invading Michigan State University.

The School of Social Work is offering a one-of-a-kind online course called “Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse – Catastrophes and Human Behavior” that will do a lot more than teach students how to fend off the undead.

Starting May 14 – the first session of the summer 2012 semester – students enrolled in the seven-week course will learn how human behavior and nature change after catastrophic incidences – from the historical to the hypothetical – through a blend of traditional coursework, online forums and a catastrophic event simulation, which will be in the form of a theoretical zombie pandemic.

Aspects of anthropology, sociology and geology, among other disciplines, will be woven into the two-credit course, which will be scored on a traditional 4.0 scale.

  1. The trivialization of higher learning has collapsed into farce and self-parody.

    Four years in any branch of the armed forces will do a young adult much better than four years of this bs.
