This intensive, academic program is organized by Tulane, Vanderbilt, and Emory universities with the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). The program is open to both graduates and undergraduates and is eligible for students with summer FLAS fellowships. Students take a Portuguese language course (two levels are offered) taught by PUC-SP faculty and a Brazilian culture course taught by faculty from one of the partner universities; in 2014, Rebecca Atencio from Tulane will direct the program.
Most students stay with host families in São Paulo for a total Portuguese immersion experience. 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. 2014 will be an especially exciting year with the World Cup beginning June 12.
