So it has finally come to this. UC Irvine announced that it will be extending its curriculum - this time studying the undead. By partnering with online learning platform Canvas and AMC, they've created a class called "Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC's The Walking Dead".

Sounds like a bit of a gimmick right? When you sign up, you'll be learning subjects from "Nutrition in a post-apocalyptic world —to are squirrels really good for you?" to "The spread of infectious disease and population modeling — swarm!"
