Laurie Santos

Professor of psychology, Yale University


Santos studies the science of happiness and teaches a popular course called “Psychology and the Good Life,” which became the most popular class in Yale’s history.

My famous course on ‘Psychology and the Good Life’ at Yale teaches students about behavioral change through positive psychology. By learning how to be more grateful, more mindful, and more socially connected, I believe we can create happier and more motivated students.
