About our Courses:
Classes for our upcoming programs are thought-provoking, interesting and fun. We expect students to be open minded, engaged and eager to learn about other countries and cultures. In-class instruction is enhanced with an out-of-class experience that includes escorted visits to economic organizations and leading international companies. Our courses are designed to offer students a deep insight into the Brazilian economy, society, political situation and culture. Classes are taught on-campus (and while traveling) by a faculty of multi-national and cosmopolitan professors, and will be finely woven into the city of Rio de Janeiro, making the most of its landmarks and event spaces.
All majors are welcome! (international relations, economics, cultural studies, languages, political science, history, business and more). UNDERGRADUATE or GRADUATE level students are welcome to apply.
Number of Courses:
Depending upon the session, students may take one or two courses.
Two courses is highly recommended.
