The Portuguese and Brazilian Studies program (Department of Spanish and Portuguese) will be holding the first of two info sections for its major and minor on Thursday of this week at 5pm in FLB 1030 (see attached flyer). This session will be of interest for any student thinking about international business, agriculture, engineering, or Latin American affairs, in addition to area/cultural/language studies. Remember, the U of I is a Title VI school and a FLAS for Portuguese is one of the ways to possibly fund both undergraduate and graduate work. The Lemann Institute of Brazilian Studies also offers various opportunities for students with a Portuguese or Brazil focus. The time has never been better to consider adding Portuguese and Brazilian Studies to students’ profiles.
Many thanks for your help spreading the word about this Thursday’s info session and our program in general.
