An epic is a collection of user stories with a unified goal. Epics are almost always delivered over a set of sprints.

Epics are a helpful way to organize your work and to create a hierarchy. The idea is to break work down into smaller pieces so that large projects can get done and you can deliver value to your customers on a regular basis. Epics help teams break their work down while continuing to work towards a bigger goal.
