University Of Baltimore Has A New Class On Zombies

Students at the University of Baltimore will learn how to survive a zombie apocalypse this semester and they’ll actually get school credit for doing it now that U of B has introduced its new Zombie 101 class.

The class will have students watch classic zombie films and read zombie comics (jealous yet?), and instead of essays, students will write horror scripts or draw storyboards for their own sick, twisted zombie adventures (we’re officially jealous). The class is no joke and neither is the gory material it covers.

“I want to reinforce the degree to which this material can be found offensive by a lot of people,” said Jonathan Shorr, chairman of the university’s school of communications design. “This is not fluffy bunny cartoon stuff. Bunnies might show up, but they’d probably be torn to pieces.”

Awesome. This is a perfect time to remind you that more zombie goodness will be on the big screen in the summer of 2012, when Brad Pitt plays the lead in the adaptation of Max Brooks’ post-zombie-apocalypse book “World War Z.”

Obviously the only way to end this post is with this.
