Interdisciplinary Programs & Minors

Portuguese Studies Minor

The interdisciplinary minor in Portuguese Studies is dedicated to the study of the vast and diverse Portuguese-speaking world comprised of over 260 million people in eight countries (and regions) on four continents and their diasporas, particularly in the US. 

The minor consists of 18 credits of coursework. At least six credits at the 3000 level or above can be taken outside of the Portuguese Language component in the Department of World Languages and Cultures or in other departments that offer courses related to the Lusophone. 

Required Courses (12 credits)

Electives (6 credits)

Students who have placed out of any of the elementary and intermediate language courses (Portuguese 1-4) will need to take more elective courses to complete the necessary number of credits required for the minor. Some of these courses may be taken in departments other than World Languages and Cultures where courses with content related to the Portuguese-speaking world may be offered.
