Celebrate Psychology: A Blog by Students
Psychology is a fascinating discipline that spans a variety of topic areas. We draw thousands of students to our courses each year. We are building a website as an opportunity for each of our students to celebrate the most interesting ideas they have learned from taking psychology courses. Every student who is currently enrolled in a psychology course will be asked to contribute a sentence or a video answering the question “What’s the most interesting thing you have learned from your psychology course(s)?” Visit the Celebrate Psychology Blog here
