Paper Title :
Middle Eastern International Students in U.S. Project-Based Engineering and Science University Classes: Acculturation Issues

Author :Ron Mckean, Louann Bierlein Palmer

Article Citation :Ron Mckean ,Louann Bierlein Palmer , (2016 ) " Middle Eastern International Students in U.S. Project-Based Engineering and Science University Classes: Acculturation Issues " , International Journal of Management and Applied Science (IJMAS) , pp. 144-150, Volume-2,Issue-12

Abstract : This qualitative research describes the acculturation experiences of 10 Middle Eastern students as they integrated with American host students during project-based, team learning assignments within engineering or other science university courses. Findings reveal the encompassing effects of language deficiencies, lack of understanding of the local culture, difficulties adjusting to a mixed gender environment, neo-racism, and general behavioral differences between the individualistic culture of host students and the collectivistic culture of Middle Eastern students. Findings also reveal the valuable role that such project-based teams play in the acculturation process. Index Terms- Acculturation, Higher Education, Internationalization, Project-Based Learning
