PSY 151 Positive Psychology (3 credits)

Positive Psychology emerged at the end of the 20th century as a corrective to the increasing focus of the discipline on pathology and treatment. Positive Psychology is the scientific study of human strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. This course will explore the basic tenets of this approach as well as review empirical research based on it. Emphasis will be given to the applications and implications of this approach to the improvement of individual lives and communities. (First-year seminar course.)
