About the Program
Portuguese is the official language of 10 countries on four different continents: Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, Brazil, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe.
In the Portuguese program of Rutgers University you will be able to demonstrate proficiency in interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational modes of communication. You will be able to carry out conversations in which you can describe, compare, contrast, in all tenses (present, past and future), with an appropriate breadth of vocabulary and register, and to be understood by a non-sympathetic listener; and to read and write documents written in academic, formal and/or literary registers of language. You will be able to conduct research projects according to the methodologies of the humanities, social or cognitive sciences and demonstrate intercultural awareness and understanding of the Luso-Brazilian world. Honors students complete independent research, write a thesis, and defend it before a faculty committee.
