Brazil Studies

The Center for Latin American Studies, in partnership with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, has been awarded The International Studies and Foreign Language Grant that will allow for the creation of a Certificate in Brazilian Studies. This grant will also allow for the creation of an online version of Portuguese 305: Portuguese for Spanish Speakers and Business Portuguese, which will go online in the Fall of 2017. This project foments the UA long-term linkages with Brazilian institutions, attracts significant student interest, and takes advantage of the UA’s unique scholarly resources on Brazil to build a coherent interdisciplinary program of activities and courses. This project will also enable a series of field-based learning opportunities for students taking Portuguese.​
