Our Portuguese program from Georgetown University serve students’ abilities and schedules with a choice between intensive and non-intensive courses. Students are also guaranteed continuity: we offer several sections of every language course every semester.

The Department offers three undergraduate majors: Spanish, Portuguese, and the Major in Spanish & Portuguese Studies, as well as two minors, one in Spanish and one in Portuguese. In addition, students can complete the  Spanish Major with Business Administration Minor (include link here).
