From Coast Magazine:
The Walking Dead returned to AMC for its fourth season. The horror drama has become so popular that the University of California, Irvine, in association with AMC and Instructure, is offering a free eight-week course on the series… The course was initiated by Instructure, an educational technology company, who approached AMC with an idea about offering an online course based on their hit series. AMC loved the idea and began to look for a university to host the class and eventually found the University of California, Irvine. Joanne Christopherson, a lecturer in the School of Social Sciences and associate director of the Demographic and Social Analysis M.A. program at UCI is one of the course professors. She said she was interested in teaching the class not only because she loves the show, but because she sees real issues in the show that we can all learn from.
