About the Program
Students in the Portuguese and Lusophone World Studies program of Rutgers University receive a rigorous and exciting education in the civilization, literature, and history of interchange throughout the Lusophone world while combining experiential learning with classroom instruction. Experiential learning can be achieved, for example, through enrollment in credit-bearing internship opportunities within government offices, non-profits, multinational corporations, and immigrant newspapers in the Portuguese and Brazilian communities of Northern New Jersey and New York. PLWS students also have the opportunity to earn credits for Study Abroad programs in Portugal and Brazil, as well as earn transfer credits for up to nine years of instruction at our region’s Portuguese Language Schools (escolas comunitárias). Lastly, PLWS majors/minors can compete for the prestigious Luso-Fraternal Association Scholarship, which is awarded annually based on merit and financial need.
