Minor in Luso-Brazilian Area Studies

Students may obtain a minor in Luso-Brazilian Area Studies by completing at least 9 credits in the Portuguese language beyond Portuguese 1200, e.g. PORT 2160, PORT 3160, and PORT 4960.

An additional 6 credits may be chosen from the following list:

Luso-Brazilian culture/topics emphasis courses offered by other programs/departments (e.g. Anthropology, History, Music, Political Science).

Normally 9 credits must be completed in residence at MU. However, students are permitted to count 6 credits toward the minor from an officially sanctioned semester or year-long foreign study program in Brazil or Portugal. These include the MU in Rio de Janeiro program at the Pontificia Universidade Catolica and the CIEE Universidade Nova de Lisboa program.

Additionally, course work must be completed with a grade in the C range or higher in each of the required courses and students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the minor.
