A life-changing program...

The Master of Applied Positive Psychology program at the University of Pennsylvania educates people, in the theories, empirical evidence, and practical applications of Positive Psychology.
Many of the participants in the MAPP program are already established professionals in fields such as:
  • Health Care
  • Primary and Secondary Education
  • University-level Education
  • Coaching
  • Law
  • Consulting
As part of earning their degrees, MAPP students have written capstones about applications of positive psychology to many aspects of daily life, as shown in this list of capstone abstracts.  Many of the capstone papers are available from Penn's Scholarly Commons.

Positive Psychology is “not just the study of disease, weakness, and damage; it also is the study of strength and virtue…Psychology is not just about illness or health; it also is about work, education, insight , love, growth, and play. And in this quest for what is best, positive psychology does not rely on wishful thinking, self-deception, or hand waving; instead, it tries to adapt what is best in the scientific method to the unique problems that human behavior presents in all its complexity” 

~Snyder & Lopez, 2002
