"Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse" is an online course that uses the idea of a Zombie Apocalypse to attract attention to the important topic and research on "Catastrophes and Human Behavior".
Students will learn about the nature, scope and impact of catastrophic events on individuals, families, societies, civilizations, and the Earth itself.
The central theme of the course is "How do humans behave in catastrophic times?"
The course begins (the entire first week) and ends (the last 4 days) with a "Catastrophic Event Simulation" (The Coronal Mass Ejection Incident - resulting in a Zombie Pandemic).
Students are assigned into Survivor Groups located throughout the United States and must face the challenges of living and surviving together during a catastrophic event.
"In a time of catastrophe, some people find their humanity; other lose theirs." Glenn Stutzky
