After a brief review of the theory of special relativity, the mathematical tools of tensor calculus that are necessary for understanding the theory of general relativity will be developed. Relativistic perfect fluids and their stress-energy-momentum tensor will be defined, and Einstein's field equations will be studied. Gravitational collapse will be introduced, and the Schwarzschild Black Hole solution will be discussed.
