The University of California, Irvine is offering a free MOOC (massive open online course) about The Walking Dead. Titled “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead,’” it's a multidisciplinary course taught by instructors from public health, social sciences, physics, and math.
“As an educator, I’m always looking for ways to make scholarly ideas come alive for my students,” says public health lecturer Zuzana Bic. “‘The Walking Dead’ provides many poignant case studies related to the scholarly areas covered in the course, and it helps that it’s one of TV’s most popular shows. There will be something for everyone in this course, which will explore concepts as varied as post- disaster nutrition, the foundations of human survival and stereotypes in a Darwinian environment.”
