Yale's 'Science of Well-Being' Course is Free Online

From 5,395 ratings, this 20 hour course averages 4.9 out of 5 stars. So, definitely worth a look!



The class is taught by Yale psychology professor Laurie Santos, who leads students through relevant research on how we’re wired to think about our own well-being and teach you how to implement that knowledge to increase happiness in your life. Since the coursework is task-oriented and the course itself is aimed at helping you build more productive habits, it’s an especially good opportunity for anyone who feels a little overwhelmed at how vague a goal to “be happier” can seem.


As for proof that this is definitely an undertaking worth 20 hours of your time, we’ll let the previous students speak for themselves: From 5,395 ratings, the course averages 4.9 out of 5 stars.


According to Lifehacker, the 10-week course consists of about two to three hours of reading and videos per week, and you can work at your own pace - so you can definitely take advantage of a free weekend to fly through a few weeks’ worth of material at a time, or postpone a lesson if you’re swamped with other work.


The Science of Well-Being” course, from Yale University, is currently being offered for free on Coursera.
