    Do you mean foreign language? Just clarifying.

    Foreign language:
    College of Ag = 3
    Liberal Arts = 4


    No clue on "English" classes.

    If you like straight forward things, go German. That's the easiest language I've studied.

    If you like to mix philosophy with your grammar, go Russian.

    Is that semesters? Years would be mind-boggling for a requirement.

    Years of HS foreign language. I was College of Ag. As long as you had 3 years of HS foreign language you didn't have to take any in college.

    If you want to be able to converse with your future bosses, take Chinese. If you want to talk with your future neighbors, take Spanish.

    Re: Modern Language Requirements

    German really is pretty much the same as English, other than changing the words up a bit and adding gender to the nouns. And if you can speak German, any of the other Germanic languages aren't that tough.

    If you want to be a rich man, take Spanish AND Chinese. Oh and if you take Spanish, Portuguese isn't that different grammatically, just sounds completely different.

    I think it is only 3 years for Liberal Arts as well. At least, for me getting a journalism degree, they're not making me take any foreign language classes since I took 3 years in high school.

    And the grammar for many European languages isn't as difficult after German, since it forms a nice formation for learning those languages.
