Students have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or year through CIEE and IES study programs in Brazil and Lisbon. The department also runs faculty-led summer programs to Brazil, in the past to Salvador and in upcoming summers to Belo Horizonte. We also bring scholars, writers, and artists to Penn State. During the 2016-2017 academic year, Brazilian novelist Ricardo Lísias and historian Bryan McCann, author of Hello, Hello Brazil and Hard Times in a Marvelous City, are visiting campus.
