SCI 172 - Introduction to Cosmology


2 credit(s)
Recent discoveries in astronomy are shedding light on some of the biggest questions we can ask: Does space go on forever, or does it have an end somewhere? Has the universe always existed, or did it have a beginning? Where does the matter that makes up our bodies come from? What will be the fate of our universe in the future? This course provides an overview of what science has to say about these kinds of questions, and an introduction to the methods used to gain this knowledge. Class discussions and assignments will help you develop your own personal perspective on how you connect to the big picture, guided by information from modern scientific cosmology.

Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Scientific Perspectives of the Natural World.
