ABSTRACT: An effort is under way in the United Kingdom to develop programs of study which will prepare graduates in modern languages for careers other than the teaching of language and literature. A significant motivation for this trend is the need to revive the U.K. as a great trading nation. The pacemakers in this movement are the recently established universities such as Sussex, Essex, and York, and a number of new universities which were formerly colleges of advanced technology. An example is the course planned for the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology. The student will concentrate on one of the Main Languages (French or German) commonly taught in U.K. schools, with development of optimum ability in the skills. He will also begin a Subsidiary Language (Italian or Spanish), with four years of intensive work. All phases of linguistics will be required, as will language-teaching theory, including problems likely to be encountered in teaching English as a foreign language while abroad. The student will study the geography, modern history, economics, and institutions of the countries of specialization. Six months will be spent in the country of the Main Language and six in that of the Subsidiary Language. Specimen syllabi from five other U.K. institutions are appended.
