Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture Summer Program in São Paulo
Program Dates: June 22 – August 1, 2014
Imagine yourself studying in the country hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup! The Stone Center for Latin American Studies invites undergraduates and graduate students interested in Portuguese language and Brazilian studies to participate in the Summer in Brazil program in 2014. 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.
The intensive academic program is organized by collaborations among Tulane, Vanderbilt, and Emory universities, as well as with the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). Students have the opportunity to earn 6-7 credits and will take one Portuguese language course (two levels) taught by PUC-SP faculty, and a Brazilian culture course taught by Tulane faculty. Students stay with host families in São Paulo for a total Portuguese immersion experience.
Program Eligibility and Credits
Student applicants must be in good academic standing and have at least a current cumulative grade point average of 2.5. The pre-requisite for this program is to have completed one Tulane Portuguese language course; non-Tulane students are required to have completed two outside-institution Portuguese language courses. For Vanderbilt students, completion of PORT 102 or higher satisfies this requirement. Non-Tulane students are welcome to apply, but should confirm with their home university that their credits will transfer. All students enroll in two courses for a total of 6-7 credits.
The 2014 program cost of the six-week program is $6,700: $5,000 for tuition; $1,700 housing, meals, and activities. The program cost includes 6-7 Tulane credits (transferable to other universities), Brazilian family home stays, one meal per day, medical insurance, and specialized group tours and activities. Airfare, incidental costs, registration fee with Federal Police of Brazil (approximately $120.00), and extra meals and expenses are not included in the program cost. Download flyer here.
