Study Abroad

Summer Program

The Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture program is a FLAS-eligible summer language program for undergraduate and graduate students. Students will study Portuguese at the beginning or intermediate level and focus on the culture of Salvador’s African heritage. It is a homestay program, which means that students will live with a Brazilian host family and have a unique opportunity to learn about Brazil and improve their Portuguese language skills.
