APAGS Publishes New International Resource Guide

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.

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.

Edited by Nadia T. Hasan, Nadya A. Fouad, and Carol Williams-Nickelson, the resource guide Studying Psychology in the United States: Expert Guidance for International Students offers superb expert guidance on graduate study in psychology, specifically tailored for international students. The authors of the fifteen chapters included international graduate students, CIRP members, Office of International Affairs staff, and others. The guide discusses the pros and cons of studying psychology in the United States and provides direction on how to find university resources geared toward international students, financing one’s education, handling visa and work permit matters, cultural considerations, mentoring relationships, academic development, obtaining internships and training, and whether to pursue employment in the United States or abroad, as well as other critical professional development issues.
