The Collaborative of Global and Big History

USM Big History
Big History class

Big History is a history of the universe from its origins to the present and beyond. Its aim is to provide a wide, contextual understanding of human existence by integrating knowledge from the natural and social sciences with the humanities. The result is a more realistic understanding of how humans fit into the vast expanse of the universe, instead of the old-fashioned way of orienting the universe around humans.
