The Big History Institute provides a hub for scholars, educators, students, members of the public, and partners from across the research, government, non-profit, and business sectors. Our innovative educational, research, and outreach initiatives work to advance Big History around the world.
Big History tells the story of the universe from the Big Bang to our complex modern societies by drawing on insights from disciplines such as astronomy, physics, biology, archaeology, history, and economics.
Big History empowers students by showing how different knowledge disciplines are connected, and helps them reflect on the big questions: Why does our universe exist? Where do we come from? What challenges will the future hold for our planet and ourselves?
Big History enables scholars to pursue research questions across disciplinary boundaries, and offers fascinating possibilities to test new ways of thinking. Big History provides a powerful framework to address complex real-world challenges.
The Institute has created a MOOC course “Big History Connecting Knowledge”. See this post for details.
