Summer in Brazil
Portuguese Language & Culture
São Paulo
June 9 – July 21, 2018

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies invites undergraduates and graduate students interested in Portuguese language and Brazilian studies to apply to its highly popular Summer in Brazil program. São Paulo, the largest metropolis in South America, is an exciting center for fine arts, theater, music and cultural life. This city is a medley of Brazilians from the country’s 26 states and from multiple ethnic groups, which makes for an exciting mix of traditions and fabulous food on every street.
 
This six-week intensive academic program is organized in partnership by Tulane University and CET Academic Programs at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). Students have the opportunity to earn 6-7 credits and take one intermediate or advanced Portuguese language course taught by CET faculty, and a course on social issues in Brazil taught in Portuguese by PUC-SP faculty. Students will stay with host families or in apartments with Brazilian roommates in São Paulo for a total Portuguese immersion experience. Excursions and activities in and around São Paulo will introduce students to all sides of Brazilian society.
