I think it is very variable and idiosyncratic even between institutions. 
For example, my husband is a ballet accompanist at the University of 
Calgary, and the teacher of one of the classes can't get a full-time job 
at U of C because they don't recognise his Masters from Julliard. Which 
is assinine because the U of C is the worst university in Canada.

Recently, as I consider spending a semester of college in France and  possibly going to graduate school in Europe, I'm even more interested  than ever.  My French professor holds two MAs because her master's  degree from France did not count in the US, so she got another in the  US.  She told me the French degrees are the only ones the US  doesn't recognize, but that seems very odd to me!  Does anyone  have any information about which degrees are recognized where?  I  know it's a big question, but you all seem so knowledgable here. ;)
