Take a zombie class in college

You can learn about zombies in college – and there are actually a surprising number of colleges that offer zombie classes as part of their curriculum.  They’re also one of the hardest classes to get a seat in – turns out, alot of people want to learn about zombies.  So, if you’re dreading picking those college classes because there just doesn’t seem to be anything that interesting, you’re in luck if you’re attending one of these schools.  So go ahead, pick a zombie class in college….

School:  Columbia College Chicago
Class: Zombies in Popular Media
Professor:  Brendan P. Riley
The class actually examines alot of what we have examined on zombies – “the history, significance, and representation of the zombie”.

School:  University of Baltimore
Class:  English 333 (aka Zombies 101)
Professor:  Arnold Blumberg
The class is supposed to “get you ready for a zombie apocalypse”.  And yes, it looks like they do a good job, because it is a true zombie class – on the first day of class, Professor Blumberg walked in and plopped a zombie head down in front of the class.   Throughout the class, students get to read zombie comic books, watch 16 of the most well-known zombie films, and write a zombie horror movie.

School:  University of Mississippi
Class:  The Living and the Un-Dead: An Inquiry into Zombies in Cinema and Literature
The class involves watching classic zombie films, reading zombie novels, and learning about “real” zombies (for example the Haitian zombies).  Course assignments involves a number of papers. Offered in fall of 2009.

    English 333 sounds like the most fun, I’d so take it if the colleges I’m planning for had it.

    Wow! I never would have thought there were such classes. News to me.

    Then again… thinking about it further, I wonder how interesting they would be. I mean come one, you get a grade in those classes. Got to be more interesting than Trig and Calculus and various other subjects available

    Wow, the closest thing we have at SUNY Cortland is a scifi class. I’m jealous!

    I know right? Don’t think we have classes like that here either

    English 333 sounds fun to me since I like to write epic stories with lessons. I hope someday I could go that school or my university could get a course like that.
