FOREIGN LANGUAGE ENTRANCE AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE B.A. DEGREE IN ACCREDITED COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.
PLOTTEL, JEANINE P.
THIS PROJECT REPORTED THE RESULTS OF THE SIXTH REVISION OF STATISTICS ON FOREIGN LANGUAGE ENTRANCE AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BA DEGREE. IT WAS FOUND THAT, OUT OF 899 COLLEGES WHICH GRANT SUCH A DEGREE, A FOREIGN LANGUAGE IS REQUIRED FOR ENTRANCE BY 284 INSTITUTIONS, AND FOR THE BA BY 772. TABLES ARE LISTED WHICH COMPARE STATISTICS WITH THOSE OF A 1957 SURVEY. THE STATISTICS SHOW THAT THE TREND TO MAKE A FOREIGN LANGUAGE A PREREQUISITE FOR THE BA DEGREE CONTINUES, WHILE, AT THE SAME TIME, MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICAN COLLEGES WILL ACCEPT STUDENTS FOR ADMISSION WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
