FOREIGN LANGUAGE ENTRANCE AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS IN U.S. COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, FALL 1966.
HERSLOW, NINA G.; LUND, GLADYS A.
A NATIONAL SURVEY WAS MADE OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS IN AMERICAN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES DURING 1965-66. THE SURVEY FIGURES SHOW THAT ONE COLLEGE IN THREE PRESCRIBES FOREIGN LANGUAGE CREDITS FOR ADMISSION AND THAT NINE OUT OF TEN REQUIRE LANGUAGE FOR GRADUATION WITH A B.A. DEGREE. IN 32 ADDITIONAL COLLEGES CERTAIN NONLANGUAGE DEPARTMENTS MAKE LANGUAGE STUDY A GRADUATION REQUIREMENT FOR THEIR MAJORS. A HALF DOZEN OTHERS GIVE THE STUDENT AN OPTION BETWEEN FOREIGN LANGUAGES AND MATHEMATICS AS A DEGREE REQUIREMENT. IT IS CLEAR FROM THE TOTAL FINDINGS REPORTED IN THIS STUDY THAT THE PAST 10 YEARS HAVE BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT GAINS FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE IN BOTH SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES. (TC)
