    I didn't understand all of that. However, based on your post, I think your level of English proficiency is too poor for successful completion of a post-graduate degree in the US. I would encourage you to work on improving your English before attempting it.

    A masters is typically two years. Most top schools don't offer terminal masters degrees; you won't have many choices if all you want is a masters. If they also offer a PhD, they want PhD students. Yes, professors collaborate with all students. No one won't work with you because you're not American. However, they might choose not to work with you if you can't read, write, or speak English well.

    Masters programs include courses you need to pass, and some include a thesis requirement (research project) as well.
