Writing your Intellectual Autobiography is a way to reflect on your achievements, challenges, successes, failures, and important decisions.


Your Intellectual Autobiography is to be two to three double-spaced pages using 12-point font (Times New Roman or Arial) with one-inch margins. The paper is to be uploaded on Canvas. The document that is uploaded is to be formatted as a Word document (.doc, .docx) or as a Rich Text File (.rtf).

In your Intellectual Autobiography, you are to describe your intellectual/academic development so far. Comment on specific academic and non-academic achievements that brought you to your current program. The focus is on your intellectual genealogy. This may include non-academic achievements, but your narrative is not to devolve into a confessional or casual document.

The Intellectual Autobiography is not graded on your level of proficiency of specific skills, but rather on how well you present the material, i.e. coherence, clarity, logical organization.

In this assignment, I’d like you to reflect on your life as a thinker and learner.  This essay is an opportunity for you to reflect on the events and circumstances that brought you to choose interdisciplinary studies as a major and to help others understand why you find interdisciplinary studies as a compelling framework for understanding the world. 

You cannot possibly write your full life story—not even your “life of the mind” story—in two to three pages.  Therefore, you must select what is most important for your ultimate aim—and for this assignment, your aim is to tell a story with a particular message.  The message you want to tell is that you have had a life that inclines you toward a certain interdisciplinary view of the world.  Accordingly, you will probably need to stress the following

·         Why you chose your area(s) of study

·         The key events, situations, and influences that lead to your disciplinary interests

·         What is it exactly that interests you about your discipline (be sure to be as specific as possible and include specific concepts, topics, methods, or perspectives of interest)?

·         Your values, skills, and strengths (and if relevant, weaknesses)

·         What disciplinary problems you are interested in

·         How you plan to use your disciplinary knowledge and skills in your future, especially in your future career plans or goals


Here are some additional rule-of-thumb guidelines.

·         Assume a general reader who does not know you personally

·         Do not disclose anything of which you are ashamed or any illegal activities

·         Do not dwell on the negative. If you find yourself wanting to discuss some major negative event, such as an accident or illness, try to emphasize what you learned from the experience rather than the disappointments or shortcomings it may have caused.
