One of my elements in determining what college I want to attend for my M.A. (if I even get there) is if one needs ANOTHER language (if not for the college's linguistics program, then their Japanese Program).
Here is what I have so far :
The M.A. in East Asian Studies = "Satisfactory completion of three years of Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, or the equivalent, as determined by examination. Language courses at the 300 level and above may be counted toward the degree. Students planning to apply to the Ph.D. program in EALC are strongly encouraged to begin the second East Asian language during the M.A. program."
The M.A. in Chinese or Japanese = "In addition to the student's major language (completion of fourth-year level), reading proficiency in another East Asian language or a European language relevant to the student's research, to be determined in consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies. Language courses above the third-year level of the major language and above the second-year level of other East Asian languages may be counted toward the degree. Students planning to apply to the Ph.D. program are strongly encouraged to begin the second East Asian language during the M.A. program."
General = "At the discretion of the graduate program and upon approval by the Graduate Division, proficiency in one or more foreign languages may be required of all students in the program. English is not considered a foreign language in this context. Proficiency is defined as the ability to read at a reasonable speed foreign research materials in one's chosen discipline. Students demonstrate proficiency by passing a written exam."
Good luck in deciding! Feel free to comment with any additions!
