Does UCLA have research opportunities for undergrads?

Hello friends, I've had my eye on UCLA, but I'm not sure if it's a research university. Are they known for offering plenty of undergraduate research opportunities, especially in the field of environmental science? Any input on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there! Yes, UCLA is indeed a research university and is well-known for providing numerous undergraduate research opportunities across various disciplines, including environmental science. Their faculty members are constantly involved in diverse research projects, and many actively seek undergraduates to be part of their research teams.

UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability (IoES) is an excellent resource for students interested in environmental research. They offer several interdisciplinary programs and initiatives that often involve undergraduate students. Additionally, you can look into the Undergraduate Research Centers, which are specifically designed for undergraduate students to engage in research conducted on campus.

To find the right opportunity for you, I recommend exploring the IoES website, connecting with professors during the departmental events, and staying informed about UCLA's various undergraduate research centers. Best of luck!
