A semester-long academic program open to students in all majors who want to improve their Portuguese skills and knowledge of Brazilian culture. This program is of particular interest to students enrolled in the College of Arts and Letters and for students with an interest in international business. It is offered in conjunction with CIEE and begins with a four-week Intensive Language and Culture Program (ILCP). During the ILCP, students are required to take an intensive Portuguese language class. Students who are near-native speakers of Spanish may be placed in a Portuguese for Spanish Speakers course (offered based on enrollment). For the remainder of the semester, students enroll in a required CIEE Portuguese language and culture course.
