Introduction to Positive Psychology

This highly engaged course integrates the process of learning about positive psychology with personal experience and reflection. We explore topics such as well-being, positive affect, optimism, relationships, and character strengths.

Tuesdays/Thursdays, 3:30 PM – 4:59 PM

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.
