    Description

    What will we be studying?

     

    Big History is a relatively new academic discipline, which examines history from the Big Bang to the present. It examines long time frames using an interdisciplinary approach by combining numerous disciplines (Science, Mathematics, Humanities, etc.). The goal is to explore human existence in the context of this bigger picture.
