Institute for Learning in Retirement Print E-mail
At Marietta College there is more to life, the reason the Institute for Learning in Retirement was established by the Dean of Continuing Education to encourage life-long learning for persons in retirement from every walks of life. Organized by local citizens, the Institute offered its first non-credit courses of cultural interest in the Spring of 1992. Meeting daily for two weeks, "Local History and Architecture" and "Understanding Modern Art, with a Focus on Picasso" attracted the first scholars. Later, to accommodate the enrolled members, the number of weekly classes was gradually reduced to once a week and the length of the session increased to eight weeks.

The scope of the courses broadened to include diverse subjects as the appreciation of the outdoors, river lore, genealogy, forestry, applied art, the world of opera, literature, the art of writing, language, science, the history of art and music, local authors, local artisans and many more. Any interest in a particular subject recommended by a member is investigated and a professional in that field is sought to teach it. The instructors are retired college professors, professionals, or authorities in their respective fields.
