UC Irvine has just announced that it will be extending its studies of the human condition into the undead. By partnering with online learning platform Canvas and AMC, UC Irvine has created a class called "Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC's The Walking Dead."

The course, while clearly a bit of a gimmick, will cover a wide range of topics pertinent to surviving a zombie apocalypse. By enrolling, you'll be signing up to learn about subjects from "Nutrition in a post-apocalyptic world — are squirrels really good for you?" to "The spread of infectious disease and population modeling — swarm!"

On top of all the learning and fun that the course description offers up, the class is being offered free. AMC has also taken a look at the syllabus, which means classes will be teaching lessons pertinent to next season's episodes as they air. So if you've got a hankerin' for a hunk o' learning-based spoilers, head on over to the course's enrollment page and sign up.
