Alright, W&M. Get on this before spring semester. Thanks.
A course in ‘Zombie Studies’ has been launched for students at the University of Baltimore.
But unfortunately for those wanting to learn how to survive the undead apocalypse, the class is actually part of the English curriculum.
As such, topics discussed will not include whether flame-throwers or shotguns are the preferred method of killing the undead.
Instead students will watch zombie movies and read comics or books featuring the creature, to analyse how literature and mass media work.
Course credits will be awarded for the writing of zombie movie scripts rather than essays and, if the course it scheduled before 2pm, most of the students will look undead too.
Course instructor, Arnold Blumberg - also the author of Zombiemania -said: “The zombie functions as an allegory for all sorts of things that play out in our country.
"Whether it’s the threat of communism during the Cold War or our fears about bioterrorism in 2010.
"It’s relatively easy to connect the zombie to what is happening in culture. "We’ll have fun with it, but we’ll also give it a serious look in different contexts, like that of American progress.
"To the zombie, our progress doesn’t matter at all. They just keep coming after us, usually at a pretty slow pace, but nonetheless we can’t stop them even though we have the weapons and a lock on the door.
"They’re relentlessness, and the fact that they’re our own family and friends turning on us, says something profound about our society."

Sometimes, when I get overwhelmed by life and school, I browse apartment listings. It reminds me that all of this work will eventually take me where I want to be (like a small, overpriced apartment in New York City). Some people know what they want to do. I know where I want to be.
