This four-week, one-course summer program is designed to provide intensive Portuguese language instruction while exposing students to the reality of social issues in Rio de Janeiro and environmental issues of the Brazilian Amazon in Belém.

In both locations, students interact with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that engage on issues of civics, citizen’s rights, culture, and sustainable development. Students live with host families and make several excursions of cultural significance.

This program is offered every other year and will next run in Summer 2018.
