Course description

The course translates findings from academic research, particularly in positive psychology and behavior change, into attitudes, behaviors, and practices that students can adopt to have happy, fulfilling, and meaningful lives. We explore the foundation of happiness and what makes us happy, set goals, and chart a path for achieving a greater sense of happiness. The course goes beyond knowledge acquisition and requires hands-on student engagement with weekly reflections and practices for behavior change. We also survey the growing range of happiness technology-tools and technologies that support individuals in their quest for a more fulfilling life-and explore entrepreneurial ideation for creating new happiness technology ventures. For complete and current details about this Harvard Extension course, see the description in the DCE Course Search.
