Abstract
  • Today, with countless study abroad programs available, students have the opportunity to travel and study all over the world. Those who are lucky enough to study abroad are able to embark on an international journey that will change their life forever. This thesis expands on what happens after returning home after such an enlightening experience (socially, academically, and psychologically). Despite what popular, prior models illustrate, I argue that a study abroad experience doesn’t end at the “reintegration” stage. Therefore, I submit my own model adapted from Peter Alder’s (1975) “transitional experience” representation, which combines his final stages of “Autonomy” and “Independence” into a singular category, that I title “New Identity.” It is important for study abroad students to understand this cross-cultural adjustment when returning home in order to successfully recognize and identify how they have changed in addition to how it will affect them in the future.
