Michigan State University is offering a course that teaches people how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

The course is entitled "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse: Catastrophes and Human Behavior" and focuses on how humans behave when faced with disasters such as plagues or earthquakes. "We will examine major catastrophic events from the past, look to potential future events, and consider a concept for increasing our chances of survival," the course catalog reads. Teacher Glenn Stutzk summarised it by saying "in a time of catastrophe, some people find their humanity; others lose theirs."

"The course, according to Time Magazine, focuses on how humans behave when faced with plagues or other catastrophic events."

Judging by the comments by some its obvious many people neglected to actually rear the article. Its not literally teaching students how to survive a zombie apocalypse, but plagues, earthquakes, meteor strikes and other catastrophic dooms day events, hell, you don't even have to read the article, just read the summary and you'll get the point.

Choice of mouth. Knowing my weak self I would be one of the people who has turned into a zombie If I wasn't a zombie: shotgun, sniper and a katana (more just for the hell of having fun rather than survival)

DUDE I WOULD LOVE IF MY SCHOOL WOULD DO THAT!!! One problem is that I probably wouldn't be able to shoot the "zombies" in the head!

No way. I reckon this course is more difficult than rocket science. Lots of complex number crunching, mainly the imaginary part.

Seriously? They're letting seven year old kids enrol in this course? I hate to think how this is going to impact on an impressionable childs mind. Most of these kids still believe good ol' Saint Nick visits them every year, imagine their reactions when they're told zombies are real. On the other hand, adults joining up to fight zombies is hilarious. P.s. Yeah, I know, it's just a fun marketing pitch for a survival camp and the owners are probably going to make a fortune but I do find it rather absurd and funny.

I don't think anyone is telling children they are real. I wouldn't...because they're not, but that wouldn't stop me from letting my kid do this. If my child told me they were interested in attending something like this, I would definitely be on board!

Zombies are the same as the "undead" right? So if they aren't dead then they're alive yes? So why do they walk like that? And what's up with the cannibalism? These questions are for the advancement of a logical approach to zombie mania.

Best weapons to have in a zombie apocalypse: two machetes for close quarter fighting, shotgun, crossbow for silent kills, sniper rifle, and chuck Norris
