“What Makes Life Meaningful?”

Curators' Distinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences Laura King

People often think of meaning in life as a grand mystery or rare accomplishment, perhaps discovered in deep personal introspection or the right self-help book. But the science of meaning in life reveals that this experience is more common than we might expect. Further, meaning in life springs from potentially unexpected sources in everyday life. King will share her research on this fascinating topic and consider the implications for the experience of meaning in life's difficult times.

Committed to engaging with the communities it serves, MU's College of Arts and Science offers Beyond Campus, a series that showcases the range and relevance of the college's research and programs, which serve as the foundation for all undergraduates at MU, whether they major in an A&S discipline or not.
