Colby offers undergraduate research across the curriculum. You could travel to Asia with your professor to study the effects of an aging population or collaborate with scientists to tackle the problems of the world’s oceans at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay, Maine.

Grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and other sources have expanded opportunities for students to learn by doing—in laboratories, in classrooms, and in the field.
