Happiness studies, as a field of research, seeks to understand what makes people happy and how happiness can be promoted and sustained. There are several ways in which happiness studies can be applied to other fields, such as business, education, social services, and more.

In business, the principles of happiness studies can enhance an organization’s competitive advantage by creating a positive work culture that highlights employee wellbeing. This has been shown to increase productivity, creativity, and job satisfaction, and reduce absenteeism and turnover.

In education, incorporating happiness into the curriculum or using happiness-based teaching methods can improve student engagement, motivation, and academic performance.

In the social services field, happiness interventions and trainings can be useful tools to help individuals overcome mental health challenges and improve their overall wellbeing

This degree is offered in partnership with Centenary University.
