Studying Psychology in the United States: Expert Guidance for International Students
Until recently, international students who considered studying psychology in the United States have had few resources available to them. This is significant given that each year the United States hosts more than half a million international students, and psychology is one of the most popular majors. In response, the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS) has brought together a remarkable group of psychologist and international student contributors who share their unique expertise and insights in this volume.
This book offers superb expert guidance on graduate study in psychology, specifically tailored for international students. It weighs the pros and cons of studying psychology in the United States and provides direction on how to find university resources geared toward international students, finance one's education, handle visa and work permit matters, cultural considerations, mentoring relationships, academic development, obtain internships and training, and whether to pursue employment in the United States or abroad, as well as other critical professional development issues.
