DAS 333 - Origins

An interdisciplinary general education course examining how scholars in the sciences and humanities approach knowledge about the universe, the planet earth, and life itself. How did the universe begin? How did life begin and how does it evolve? How has the planet changed throughout its history? How were answers to these questions discovered? How do we construct narratives about these events, and how do those texts reveal our assumptions and values?
