Hello, I am not sure if I found the right place to answer some of my questions but here we go. I'm thinking of going back to school. Never studied on university level before so I'm a little nervous and not sure if I'm cut out for it. I really want to work within the field of psychology, more precisely counseling (individuals,couples,families) as far as I know... this might however change after I acquainted myself better with other areas of psychology. Anyway I need to calm my nerves some so I'm very curious about the practical aspect of studying psychology (bach>masters) on university level. What's the curriculum look like, deadlines, how are the tests and presentations designed (written, oral, reports?) and generally how hard are the courses? I know the latter is subjective and altough I appreciate any input, I'm mostly interested in the practical aspect and what it's like. Literally no detail irrelevant or too small. If it's of any relevance I'm planning on attending an university in Oregon, probably Portland. Btw I don't live in the States and I'm not american, I'm thinking of taking the route via community college as international student and then transferring to an university. Thanks
