AMC, University of California Irvine to Offer Online Course on The Walking Dead
Now you can feed your brains while you watch zombies feast on them.
AMC, in conjunction with the University of California Irvine and tech company Instructure, is launching a free online course that will examine a variety of subjects as they relate to AMC’s zombie-themed thriller The Walking Dead, Forbes reports.
The course, titled “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons From AMC’s The Walking Dead,” will be taught by UC Irvine professors and may cover fields of study such as public health and “the science of hope.”
Each class will discuss the plot of the episode from the night before and that of previous seasons as they relate to a topic, such as public health. It is also worth noting that though UC Irvine is offering the course and anyone can enroll, students cannot earn college credit for the course.
The online course will begin the day after The Walking Dead’s fourth season premiere, Oct. 14 and end on Dec. 20. According to USA Today, the course will run for eight weeks and take place on Mondays. Fans of the show can view a full description of the course and sign up for the course here.
The season four premiere for AMC’s The Walking Dead is slated to air on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m.
