Measurement of Happiness RX60014

Measuring happiness is a challenge as it is unclear whether this mental state is attained at what level, intensity or context. Unlike negative mental states that are measured with a great degree of accuracy (like anxiety, depression), happiness is a subject of high degree of variability amongst individuals. The course will address this challenge in measurement with a special focus on measurement alternatives, research designs and outcome orientation. The primary aim of this course will be to impart knowledge with empirical evidence so that students can carry out research in this field.
