(College of Letters and Science)

Department Office. https://spanish.ucdavis.edu/en/undergraduate/minor-luso-brazilian-studies

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese sponsors the minor in Luso-Brazilian Studies, which offers students the opportunity to engage with the Portuguese-speaking world as a global space, as well as gain in-depth knowledge of Brazilian literature, culture and society. The minor is structured to facilitate engagement with Latin American, peninsular, and transatlantic topics, while ensuring that students master the essential skills of linguistic competence, and literary and cultural knowledge.

Education Abroad Program Options. We highly recommend that students participate in study abroad; see http://studyabroad.ucdavis.edu. Courses taken abroad may count toward the Luso-Brazilian Studies minor.
