Psychology @ Colby
|We believe the best way to learn the science of psychology is by engaging our faculty and students in a collaborative search for new knowledge about human cognition, emotion, and behavior. In this site, you will see a number of examples of how we combine teaching and research, all with student involvement – as research assistants, research participants, and in courses.|
