The study investigates the psycho-cultural and social influences on the academic and social coping concerns of Nigerian graduate students studying at Clark Atlanta University.
The research collection of data among Nigerian graduate students at Clark Atlanta University highlights the roles played by different variable factors such as educational, social, cultural and economic, which may create stress that may in turn affect the well-being of the student's academic and social life.
The stipulated data in this research portrays the importance of establishing a multi-cultural counseling program that will enhance the students; past and present psycho-cultural experiences and offer counseling and psychological support as graduate students encounter the new learning eco-community. This in turn helps in reducing the stress experienced by the students during this period of adjustment and separation anxiety from their traditional support systems.
