This intensive academic program in Brazilian Portuguese is organized by Tulane University, Vanderbilt University, and Emory University with the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). 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. Most students stay with host families in São Paulo for a total Portuguese immersion experience. The program is open to graduates and undergraduates, and students with Summer FLAS Fellowships are eligible. Students have the opportunity to earn 6–7 credits and will take one Portuguese language course (two levels are offered) taught by PUC-SP faculty and a Brazilian culture course taught by Tulane/Vanderbilt and/or Emory faculty.
