Yale University's most popular class teaches 'happiness'

New Delhi, Mar 29 (ANI): The search for one of life's most elusive treasures - happiness - has driven nearly 1,200 students into an enormous concert hall at Yale University for its most popular class ever. Havovi Cooper reports.

These students at Yale University aren't looking for a cure for cancer or life on other planets- they are searching for something far simpler but elusive-happiness. Psychology and the Good Life is the most popular course ever offered at Yale and explores what science has to say about the secret to happiness.

Homework assignments for the class, also known as Psyc 157, include showing more gratitude, performing acts of kindness and bumping up social connections. And due to overwhelming demand, the course is now being offered free to the public, through Coursera.org.
