Abstract

Culture shock is believed to be a major issue for students who go abroad to study. Though small differences around students may cause frustration, for instance; the food is different, unfamiliar language, norms, and the other traditions that they are used to. Yet, culture shocks are not either sickness or disease. Moreover, culture is could be learnt and culture shock is possible to be prepared in advance. These possibilities encourage the researcher to conduct research concerned in culture shock. Related to culture shock phenomenon, the research problems are formulated as the following: (1). What culture shocks were faced by Students of University Muhammadiyah Malang during studying abroad? (2). How did the students overcome the culture shocks during studying abroad? This research uses qualitative research while the data are displayed in the form of descriptive. This research requires seven participants who are originally students of University Muhammadiyah Malang to acquire the data sources. In analyzing the data earned, firstly reviews the collected data that have been collected, then identify the culture shocks faced by research subjects. The next step is identifying the solutions made by research subjects to overcome the culture shocks. While drawing the conclusion, the researcher submits an expert’s words to give proofs that culture shocks could be learnt. Thought most of the consequences of culture shock appear in negative way, it is actually a learning process where sojourners are capable to cope with. As the research findings and discussions were made, the researcher discovered that based on ABCs- “The Treatment of Culture Shock”, the most of the correspondents resolved the culture shock with emphasizing affects. (1) twelve culture shocks were resolved by affect, (2) six culture shocks were resolved by behavior, (3) five culture shocks were resolved by cognitions.
