I know what college I'm going to.

It is a class to die for - Zombie studies is now on the curriculum at Baltimore University. The new course, which promises to "get you ready for a zombie apocalypse", invites students to devour classic zombie films and comics. Instead of essays, they write horror scripts or draw storyboards for their ideal monster movie. The minor class, titled English 333, has already been dubbed "Zombie 101" by the Baltimore Sun newspaper. It was introduced to meet a demand for "interesting, off-the-wall" courses for a new minor in pop culture, according to Jonathan Shorr, chairman of the university's school of communications design. 'Truly disgusting' "It's a back door into a lot of subjects," he told the Baltimore Sun. "They think they're taking this wacko zombie course, and they are. But on the way, they learn how literature and mass media work, and how they come to reflect our times." However, horror fans will be pleased to find that the class also explores two less academic themes: "blood and guts". "We're going to be dealing with some of the truly disgusting stuff that's been done in horror over the years," said Arnold Blumberg, author of Zombiemania, who teaches the course. "I want to reinforce the degree to which this material can be found offensive by a lot of people. "This is not fluffy bunny cartoon stuff. Bunnies might show up, but they'd probably be torn to pieces."

Field and Interdisciplinary Studies courses

Fifth down from the top under Arts and Culture. My sister is planning on taking that class if they offer it next semester.

That's not so bad. I heard the HP books drew a lot on classics. It's really just a clever way to get people excited about subjects they normally would be uninterested in.

Also, huge mistake mentioning you have a sister. Now you're going to have to ignore repeated requests not only for your own picture, but for hers as well.

If the classes aren't completely made of fluff, it sounds like a good idea. I have no problems with making a class as interesting as possible if people learn in it.
