Language Addition

Hello all!

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 :

http://www.indiana.edu/~ealc/index.html (Indiana University):

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."

http://www.hawaii.edu/graduatestudies/degree/html/degree.htm#languages (UHM):

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."

http://deall.osu.edu/programs/graduate/default.cfm (Ohio State University) = ???

http://www.cla.purdue.edu/fll/Japanese/ (Purdue University: MA in Japanese (second language acquisition and pedagogy) = ???

http://web.arizona.edu/~eas/handbook/masters.html#JapMas (University of Arizona) = "One year (6 units) of language beyond the third-year level, such as Japanese 521/522, or Japanese 505 and a seminar (or have equivalent Japanese language ability)."

http://ealc.uchicago.edu/grad_requirements.shtml (The University of Chicago) "The mastery of languages is the first, essential step toward the understanding of civilizations. The minimum language requirement for the M.A. is three years of modern Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, which may be fulfilled by completing course work with a grade of B or better or by passing with a grade of "high pass" a language exam administered by the Department. Students entering with prior training must take this placement exam, the results of which will either ensure their enrollment at an appropriate level or allow them to pass out of additional language course work."

Good luck in deciding! Feel free to comment with any additions!
