Overview

Stress Success

Course Description

Recognizing that 70-90% of all doctor’s visits are a result of stress-related ailments, we, as a culture, are often neglectful at meeting our own needs and managing stress in a way that creates health and well-being. This course is structured around an experiential understanding of the way stress manifests physiologically in the nervous system, brain, and body. It offers tools through mindfulness practices like breathwork, attention shifts, and the cultivation of an overall experience of ease and well-being in order to change the ways in which we fundamentally relate to and work with our own experiences of stress. This course offers new and science-directed ways to begin making stress our friend.

Certificates of completion are issued by the online providers edX, Coursera, and Udacity.

Enrollment
How do MOOCs work?

Designed for an online audience, MOOCs are available to anyone with an internet connection and are free to enroll. Some MOOCs can be started any time – others at regular intervals – and range in length from a few weeks to a few months to complete. You’ll have access to a wide range of online media and interactive tools, including video lectures, class exercises, discussions, and assessments.

Who can enroll in MOOCs?

Anyone with an internet connection can enroll. Sme courses may be unavailable in a small number of countries because of trade restrictions or government policies.

How do you enroll in a MOOC?

Visit one of our partner platforms — edX, Coursera, or Udacity — to enroll in a MOOC. Then, watch the pre-recorded lectures, learn from the course readings, and complete related work, like quizzes and in some cases, final projects.

How much do MOOCs cost?

Most courses are free, though there is a small fee if you opt to work towards a certificate of completion. Some courses count toward university credit—and some, like our online master’s program in computer science, offer a full degree. These credit-bearing courses do have fees and applications associated with them.
