The Science of Behavior Change

Our advanced undergraduate seminar taught by BCFG Co-Directors Angela Duckworth and Katy Milkman on “The Science of Behavior Change” introduced students to sustainable strategies for behavior change through the dual lens of psychology and economics. Angela and Katy will be teaching this class again in fall 2020.
