Opportunities for Research Experience

Undergraduate students at UNLV are strongly encouraged to gain research experience by becoming research assistants in a psychology lab. By getting involved in laboratory research, you can enhance your understanding of the methods psychologists use and the process through which they discover new information about psychology.

Research assistants are active members of a research team, interacting with undergraduates who have similar educational and career interests, working closely with faculty and graduate students and in some cases having research culminating in an honors thesis, presentation, or publications. Students can volunteer or sign up for PSY 496 (Independent Study) or PSY 498 (Independent Research) for academic credit.
