Portuguese, Minor

We live in a truly  global world where the leaders of tomorrow will dwell in and negotiate all transactions in spaces not claimed in exclusivity by a single people, language or culture. Knowing Portuguese will help you become a truly global citizen. Our minor certifies that you have attained intermediate to advanced levels of listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiency in the language. It also opens  before you a fascinating cultural and intellectual world in and beyond the classroom with a myriad of opportunities to travel, live and work abroad.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.

Students will be required to take a total of five classes. These classes may include courses and language classes at or above the intermediate level in Dialogues of Civilization at NU.
