Obtain certification to broaden your opportunities as a psychology research assistant
To get a psychology research assistant position, some workplaces may require a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification. If you take a master's program in a relevant field, this certification is usually offered as a part of the degree. However, you do not need a master's degree to get this certification. A BCBA can be obtained through a standalone course. Taking this course, and obtaining your BCBA, can make you stand out among other applicants.
