Foreign language requirements vary wildly from college to college, and many schools have no requirement at all. At schools where requirements do exist, the requirement is generally only for two years. That said, most highly selective schools recommend three or even four years of high school level foreign language work for their applicants. Further, skill in appropriate foreign languages is useful for many college majors and helps open the doors for both study abroad opportunities and a wider range on internships.
