Walking Dead 101: 

The University of California offered a course on ”The Walking Dead” called “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead.”

The course description read: ”From understanding social identities to modeling the spread of disease, this eight-week course will span key science and survival themes using AMC’s The Walking Dead as its basis. Each week we’ll watch engaging lectures, listen to expert interviews, watch exclusive interviews with cast members talking about their characters, use key scenes from the show to illustrate course learning, read interesting articles, review academic resources, participate in large and small group discussions, and test our learning with quizzes.”

The course taught damage control, stress management, nutrition and survival skills in a post-apocalyptic world.

Lecturer Sarah Eichorn told the Daily Mirror, “There’s kind of something for everyone in the class. I think for all four of us, it’s an opportunity to get students interested and aware in our fields. I never expected to be recording lecture videos where I’m talking about decapitating people in my mathematics lecture.”
