Take Yale’s most popular class for free online during quarantine
People around the world are learning to cope with quarantines in an attempt to stop the further spread of the new coronavirus. As city force people to self-quarantine, everyone is searching for ways to keep busy — and Yale University has a solution.
“Psychology and the Good Life,” a course first introduced by Professor Laurie Santos in spring 2018, teaches stressed-out students how to be happier. The university said it quickly became the most popular course in the school’s 317-year history.
Given its success, Yale decided to release the course online with the title, “The Science of Well Being.” It features lectures by Santos “on things people think will make them happy but don’t — and, more importantly, things that do bring lasting life satisfaction.”
