The Portuguese minor focuses on two outcomes: developing students’ linguistic proficiency and broadening their insights into Lusophone cultures so that students may engage in meaningful interactions with Portuguese speakers throughout the world. The communication skills and transcultural awareness that students develop throughout the course of the minor provide preparation for a wide range of opportunities and experiences, both in and beyond the classroom.
