Abstract and Works Cited


This research paper determines the unique factors that cause stress among the international student population in the United States of America. Aside from academic stress, foreign students matriculating at American universities and colleges also succumb to different types of stressors. This paper intends to explore the political, sociocultural and economic factors that make international students vulnerable to stress. By examining the consequences of President Donald Trump’s “Muslim” travel ban, the paper will demonstrate how politics impedes an international student’s process of integration within the community, followed by how sociocultural barriers and economic challenges further exaggerate stress among international students.
