About

The Applied Positive Psychology program of University of Pennsylvania was the first in the world to offer a degree in this rigorous field of study. 

Overview

The Applied Positive Psychology program of University of Pennsylvania is a hybrid model that allows you to explore the theory and practice of positive psychology without relocating to Philadelphia, so you can continue working full-time. The low-residency format consists of 10 required on-site visits to the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia, where students and faculty gather for intensive weekends of learning and networking. Whether you are a credentialed professional seeking to transform your workplace or career or are building a foundation for further graduate study, the MAPP curriculum allows you to apply the topics most relevant to your interests and goals.

Rapidly becoming one of psychology’s most transformative fields, positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable humans and organizations to flourish.
