The College of Arts & Sciences requires students to complete either a 10 semester hour credit sequence (one year), or a 12 semester hour credit sequence (two years). All incoming students should be placed in language courses according to previous language study. Students with fewer than two years of high school language will be placed in the 1001 level. Those who have studied Portuguese for two or more years will be placed in the 1002 level.
The Department of Romance Languages offers only one sequence in basic Portuguese:
Basic Portuguese 1001-1002: 5 credits each
The class meets five days per week. Instruction emphasizes oral and written communication in Portuguese through activities in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students must participate every day in class, since part of their evaluation is based on how they collaborate in Portuguese in small groups. The curriculum includes authentic aural, written and video input. Class is conducted in Portuguese. Attendance is required.
For more information about the Portuguese, please contact the Portuguese Instructor.
