Welcome to the Wonderful Worlds of Cosmology!

Ever wonder why the universe is filled with stuff and how it got to be this way? Well, this is the course for you. We'll cover the Big Bang, relativity, cosmic dynamics, baryon evolution, and the dark sector. By the end, you'll know more about how we got here than anyone living more than a few decades ago, assuming we're right this time. And you'll know some of the math!

All course requirements are given in the syllabus, which should be referenced for all expectations and policies of the class. The primary resource for the course is the textbook Introduction to Cosmology, 2nd edition, by Barbara Ryden.
