Title

Report "Richmond College Department of Foreign Languages"

Description

This document is a report of Richmond College’s Department of Modern Foreign Languages for September 1964 to January 1969 that was compiled by the chairman who is not named. Only French, German, Spanish, Russian, and Italian were taught. The report offers details about the department’s faculty, facilities, curriculum, students, public activities, and problems such as faculty recruitment issues due to restrictive religious qualifications, crowding, unequal quality of instruction in Westhamtpon and Richmond College, lack of international students, and inability to connect with community directly. Students studied abroad in Canada for French, Mexico for Spanish, and Germany for German; for the 1969 summer session, students were planning to study in Spain for Spanish with university faculty, France for French, and Russia for French. The report also called for the "erection of a University Department that combines the faculties of Richmond, Westhampton, and University Colleges" and an "English as a Foreign Language" course to be offered at University College for international students.
