Cosmology is the study of the origin and nature of the entire universe. Despite its apparently esoteric nature, much of the cosmological story is directly accessible to our intuition and can be told in everyday language. Our study will be based on Great Courses lectures by University of Virginia professor Mark Whittle. The course assumes no prior knowledge of astronomy, yet will take us well beyond more traditional astronomy survey courses.
