Maybe the zombie apocalypse didn’t happen on May 21 last year, but the Vegan Zombie warns that they’re still coming for us. So, Michigan State University’s new course just might be a good idea if you’re worried about a potential zombie pandemic.

According to Michigan Radio, the university will offer a seven-week online course teaching students how to survive a zombie outbreak (among other crisis situations). Students will be separated into small groups of “survivors” and receive information about the crisis situation. “They won’t have the whole thing, because part of it is the struggle to assess your situation, try to get good information, and then build your plan from there,” said Social Work professor Glenn Stutzky.

Stutzky added that the class entitled “Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse – Catastrophes and Human Behavior” will also be a look at past catastrophic events and human reaction. “No matter what we face in the future, we’re going to fair better by learning how to cooperate with one another,” he said.

The course description says, “In times of catastrophes some people find their humanity, while others lose theirs. What will you and your group do?”

Sounds like a class this lover of horror movies would have signed up for! The course will be for two credits and begin on May 14. Check out Professor Stutzky’s preview video for the course below, complete with a zombie!
