Summary

Results of the 10th national survey (1982-83) of bachelor's degree granting institutions in the United States concerning their foreign language entrance and degree requirements encompass the responses of 1,261 institutions. Each institution is classified in one of six categories, according to its status in relation to the 9th survey, carried out in 1974-75: (1) requirement established since 1974-75; (2) requirement increased; (3) requirement abolished; (4) requirement reduced; (5) requirement maintained; and (6) no requirement, either in 1974 or 1982. Three data tables are included in the survey report: (1) the number of responses and percentage of the total classified in each category, separately for entrance and degree requirements; (2) the status of entrance and degree requirements in all institutions, juxtaposed with responses from the previous two surveys; and (3) entrance and degree requirements outlined by state and region. A directory of all responding institutions, listed alphabetically by state, gives coded information about entrance and degree requirements. Of the institutions responding to both this and the 1974 survey, half had reduced and half had increased their degree requirements, whereas in 1974 the change was found to be primarily downward.
