About the Happiness Masters Program
Reports state that the UHS Center for Happiness and Well-Being is behind launching the new degree program. The program’s faculty includes renowned psychologists, physical trainers, and doctors.
Initially, the degree is offered at UHS’ Kala Shah Kaku campus only. However, UHS plans to start offering the Master’s degree of Happiness at other campuses in the coming months.
VC UHS Reacts to the Degree Program
Speaking about the uncanny program offering, Vice-Chancellor (VC) UHS Dr. Javed Akram said:
Happiness has an important place in people’s lives, and it helps to tackle the negativity in society. Sadly, society has restricted the definition of happiness with specific events such as weddings, birthdays, sports. However, in reality, happiness refers to many other things.
He further stated:
The UHS Master’s of Happiness degree program has been designed to help people find happiness in everyday tasks and live healthier and prosperous lives.
The Master’s degree of Happiness has been launched with a very clear (and essential) goal in mind. Hopefully, this degree program will help the new generation find their way to long-lost happiness. Only time will tell what the program entails and how successfully it impacts society.
