Happiness, Now With a Price

Happiness now comes with a price. $700 if you're an undergraduate, and $1650 if you're a grad student. At least, that's what Professor Tal Ben-Shahar's Harvard course Positive Psychology will cost in it's online version, offered through the Harvard Extension school.

What started out as a course of 8 students, with 2 dropping, has turned into an 800 person mega-course - so putting it on the internet was an obvious next choice. Of course, Harvard isn't the only school offering courses on happiness - it's a growing trend.
