Yale University is offering its most popular course ever online, and now anyone can take it for free!

Called The Science of Well-Being, this class aims to teach students how to be happier (this seems like the perfect topic given the current coronavirus pandemic) and is based on a course taught on campus called Psychology and the Good Life.

This class will engage you in a series of challenges designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits. According to The New York Times, this is most popular class in Yale’s history and it has garnered both national and international media attention.

        Where did you see that information? Do you know how to get the certificate? Does it say from coursea or from Yale on the certificate?

          It says it when you check out. It does not specify what it says.

        Did anyone find out who sends the certification, Yale or Coursera? Thank you.
