The course on Foundation of Positive Psychology is very inspiring. I am happy and honoured to have the opportunity to take the lesson given by Prof Seligmen. Other speakers are very professional too. I feel extraordinarily concentrated when taking this online course as I do not have to worry about the traveling, the disruption of daily schedules as the time I spent on the course is fully under my control, the possible distraction from classmates and the environment, etc. Also, because English is not my first language, I appreciate the transcripts offered by the course.

Congratulations to Marty Seligman and all the staff at UPENN - I loved the course and I am grateful to all the positive changes this new science is bringing to the world. Thank you Dr Seligman!

I learned about so many possibilities in positive psychology that I opted to pursue the specialization. How wonderful for science and humanity to meet!

Great information and content. Please have more courses on this subject!!!
