Portuguese Language Program
WELCOME TO THE PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE PROGRAM AT BC!
The Department of Romance Language and Literatures offers a year-long introductory sequence in Elementary Portuguese. The two-semester sequence offers students from all disciplines an opportunity to learn the basis of the Portuguese language and get in touch with the rich and vibrant cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world. Students are immersed in the language and its cultural traditions from the first day of class, learning essential reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in context.
Thanks to an agreement between Boston College and the Camões Institute of Cooperation and Language, a lectureship in Portuguese Language was established at the university in 2011. Additionally, the Office of International Programs offers semester- and year-long study abroad programs at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Jainerio (PUC-Rio).
Please note: Currently the RLL department only offers elementary Portuguese (1, Fall; 2, Spring). Elementary Portuguese is not sufficient for satisfying the language proficiency requirement for graduation.
