About

Arts - Portuguese at University College Cork allows you to study the language and culture of Portugal and of the Portuguese-speaking world through literature, art, theatre, film, music, history and media.

Overview

The Arts - Portuguese students from University College Cork are absolute beginners when they begin their studies and you will have the option to spend Year 3 at a university in Portugal (Coimbra).

Modules include Portuguese language at all levels; the study of the situation of Portuguese as a global language; Portuguese literature and culture; and literature and culture in the Portuguese speaking world (Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde) with an emphasis on Brazil.

Studying the language involves oral and aural practice and laboratory training, as well as reading and writing with a tutor.

Groups are small and facilitate close interaction. Our staff are experts in their field and are highly committed to our students.

As well as studying the language, the course also involves the study of the culture of Portugal and of the Portuguese speaking world (Lusofonia) through literature, art, theatre, film, music, history and media.
