The program on Autobiographical Studies is designed to meet the needs
of midlife and older persons. Courses in the Autobiographical Studies
program are directed toward releasing the potentials of pre and post-retirees.
Individuals explore where they have been in life, where they are,
and where they would like to be. For many persons the extension of
life can provide the best years in terms of new activities such as
volunteering, learning, and expanding personal relationships. Participants
become aware of the lives they have lived and are more confident and
optimistic about facing the years ahead.
