This special eight-week course is designed for people wishing to intensively study beginning Brazilian Portuguese. Graduate students, faculty and other researchers, and advanced undergraduates who need to develop communication skills and reading knowledge for research will find this special Institute particularly useful. Instruction is five days a week, four hours a day, and the course (listed as Portuguese 301-302) carries eight (8) semester hours of credit.
The institute will be directed and taught by Professor Severino Albuquerque who will be assisted by a lecturer or teaching assistant. Knowledge of Spanish is required (2-3 years equivalency). A limited number of Title VI FLAS Fellowships are available to graduate students in conjunction with the Institute.
The next Institute will take place during the summer of 2017, and applications will be due in the spring of 2017.
