Trading Cultures, Transforming Lives: Positive Change During Study Abroad

 
9783639101201: Trading Cultures, Transforming Lives: Positive Change During Study Abroad

It is increasingly popular for college students to study abroad. Almost 250,000 students from the U.S. study abroad each year. Students often report that their time abroad is transformative, enriching, and one of the best experiences of their lives. These glowing reports are encouraging, but until now there have been very few scientific research studies on how going abroad affects students' identity and personal growth. This book describes a thorough and empirical investigation of how students change while abroad. Students abroad experienced personal growth, higher life satisfaction, higher self-esteem, and other positive changes. Students with certain traits, such as extraversion and openness to experience, were especially likely to experience positive change. Various social behaviors abroad, as well as living with a host family, were associated with identity change. The findings are also explained in terms of three well-known theories of identity. Findings from this study can help students, parents, and study-abroad professionals take steps to ensure that study abroad is a particularly rewarding and meaningful event.
