Why do some people seem happier than others? What impacts how we feel? What aspects contribute to how we overcome challenges? What makes us who we are? In this course we will utilize scientific literature to inform our understanding and look behind the scenes of how curiosity is transformed into research that guides our insight into who we are and how we came to be.
