Our institutions of higher education are finally teaching students things they'll actually need in the real world. This summer, Michigan State University will once again offer a course called "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse: Disasters, Catastrophes, and Human Behavior."

According to its Facebook page, the online course "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," and will be "assigned into Survivor Groups located throughout the United States and must face the challenges of living and surviving together during a catastrophic event."

Not only will students learn how to plan for the day when hordes of mindless, gore-covered fiends come for their delicious brains, they will also receive class credit.

Here's a movie-style trailer for the course (because "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse" needs a way to set itself apart from ENG 117: Intro to Victorian Lit):
