A 3-credit course on happiness is being offered in Fall 2019, taught by Dr. Chris Martin, a postdoc with a background in sociology and psychology. This course integrates topics from psychology, economics, philosophy, and sociology on happiness and meaning in life.

  • Through psychology, you will learn about why sustainably changing your daily happiness level is difficult
  • Through sociology, you will learn about how rises and falls in income inequality have affected happiness in America
  • Through economics, you will learn about why income only partially predicts one’s happiness level
  • Through clinical psychology, you will learn about ways to cope with distress and excessive self-criticism
  • Through philosophy, you will learn about how functioning well differs from feeling happy
