Do I have to speak a second language to apply?

No, the requirement is that you must be proficient in a language in order to graduate with the M.A. in Global Affairs. While many of our students have met the language proficiency requirement at the time of admission, you may take up to four language courses at Yale as part of your degree program (joint degree students may only take two). To demonstrate proficiency you may complete second year (L4) language courses at Yale, demonstrate completion of third year language courses on the transcripts submitted with your application, or place into a Yale L5 course.
