This highly engaged course explores the ideas and research of positive psychology. We will read selected articles and chapters, as well as participate in numerous activities, in and out of class.Throughout this course, we will investigate various positive psychology interventions. We will integrate the process of learning with personal experience and reflection. This emphasizes personally engaging with the material. To excel in this course, students must enthusiastically digest material, engage with the research, and collaborate with peers. This requires articulating ideas in verbal and written form, with some group work in and out of class. All assessment is meaningfully connected to our course goals. Considering the content of what you will be learning, course material is valuable in its own right, even without your associated grade.
