The Luso-Brazilian Studies minor 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. Many students who major in Spanish opt to minor in Portuguese. We highly recommend that students participate in summer study abroad in Salvador, Brazil: http://summer-abroad.ucdavis.edu. Courses taken in other study abroad programs may also count toward the minor.
