This interdisciplinary course for Bachelor-3 students connects economics and other social sciences with its ultimate purpose: understanding and increasing people’s well-being. The central question in this minor is how to improve people’s well-being in various contexts (in personal life, at work, at the macro level).

The 15 ECTS course is divided in five modules:

Module 1: Well-being: An introduction

Module 3: Work and well-being
Module 4: Health and well-being
