Interdisciplinarity & The Big History Project
Limited Capacity seats available

No single discipline can know all there is to know about absolutely everything. It would be impossible to think of all the questions to ask, let alone have all the answers. Because the Big History Project (BHP) is a course that covers, well, just about everything, we go beyond a one-discipline approach. Historians, anthropologists, archaeologists, biologists, and astrophysicists are all crucial to helping us understand the history of the Universe, and where humans might be headed in the future. Let’s get hands-on with some BHP course activities that help students examine single events from multiple points of view. As you’ll soon see, inquiry is central to this endeavor!
