Minor in Brazilian Studies

Group standing near buildings in Paraty, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Minor in Brazilian Studies is designed to help students acquire advanced training in the Portuguese language and gain knowledge and understanding of Brazilian culture. The goal of this Minor is to provide an opportunity for motivated undergraduates to develop communication skills and cultural understanding to strengthen them in their personal, professional, and academic endeavors, and ultimately to provide greater opportunities for advanced graduate training and a competitive edge in the job market. It supports a number of initiatives in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and across the University of Kansas, including the undergraduate research initiative, calls for greater interdisciplinary and international collaboration, and the broader goal of increasing linguistic and cultural literacy at KU.
