The University of California, Irvine offering a FREE online zombie-themed survival course. Topics covered in the course include the spread of infectious disease and population modeling, the role of energy and momentum in damage control, nutrition in a post-apocalyptic world (are squirrels really good for you?), and more. The course runs from October 14 to December 20 (coincidentally, in parallel with season four of The Walking Dead).
