The description, which can be found through much tinkering at schedule.msu.edu, is as follows:
This course illustrates a variety of sci-fi themes: utopian and dystopian societies, relationships between humans, alien contact, post apocalyptic futures, female heroes and the metaphor of the vampire and the zombie. We will look closely at Aliens, The Terminator and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We will read fiction and essays by Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood, Bell Hooks, and others.
