Survey of Foreign Language Entrance and Degree Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts Degree in United States Institutions of Higher Education.
Brod, Richard I.
This report is based on a questionnaire survey directed in Fall 1970 to foreign language department chairmen at 1,262 United States colleges and universities that grant the B.A. degree. Information was received from 1,034 chairmen at 822 different institutions. Detailed information from 786 institutions was supplemented by data taken from the current catalogues of 420 additional institutions, for a total of 1,206 institutions, or 96.1% of the total group surveyed. The report consists of an introductory summary of results, four detailed tables, an institutional directory, and a set of supplements to the directory. Two of the tables present a breakdown of data on requirement status by region and state, with comparative figures from surveys undertaken in 1965 and 1966. (Author/RL)
