God and the Cosmos

Course Description

When did it all begin? How vast is it? Why is it expanding? Will it ever end? What is our place in it? These big questions about the nature of the cosmos have been around as far as the history of human beings goes, and both science and religion have been proposing cosmological theories about them. In this course, students will explore scientific facts and theories about the cosmos, while thinking about their implications for theology.
