I've been admitted! Which one?

Recommended Posts

I'm an international student (Japan) and I have been recently admitted to Simon Fraser University and Penn state for the undergraduate criminology program. 

I hope to end up working in the U.S.,but I was wondering if I can get my BA in Canada then try to go to grad school in America. 

But I am not sure if that'll be possible since I'll learn about the country specific laws.

And I think it's easier to get a visa and work in Canada?

I don't know where to go. Help me please!

It depends on a lot of things. If you are interested in eventually being in the United States I think it makes more sense to attend school there as an undergraduate. One of the things it depends on is what you are interested in learning about within criminology. 


For example, if you want to take many law related courses, obviously you should go to school in the U.S. But if you want to take courses about crime prevention or criminal justice research then either school would be fine because courses would be functionally similar at the respective schools. Me for instance, I am finishing my undergraduate at a school in the U.S. but I've applied for Simon Fraser's Masters program because many of their faculty specialize in the research I want to work on. I do not plan on working in Canada though, probably going to move back into the U.S. after my degree. 


Speaking of which, why or how do you know you want to go to graduate school before you've even started your undergraduate program?
