Update for 2020 International Experiences and Research

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all 2020 study abroad, international internships, and research opportunities have been postponed.

Internships

The Center for Brazilian Studies facilitates and funds student internships in Brazil. In 2020, we are offering several funded internships with existing partners working in the areas of sustainability, environment, and health.

If you are a student interested in interning in any field in Brazil, we are happy to talk with you to find a placement.
 
Please see our funding opportunities page and the College of Arts and Letter’s International Internships program page for more information. 
 

Summer and Short-Term Study Abroad Programs

Summer 2020 Study Abroad in Salvador & Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Inequality & Activism in Brazil

This program has been canceled for Summer 2020.

Learning will take place both inside and outside the classroom as we examine different forms of inequality in Brazil and learn various theoretical approaches to understanding social and economic disparity. We will meet with different activists at grassroots NGOs and explore what might be done to alleviate poverty and environmental degradation, as well as other forms of social injustice.

Students will visit both the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia, as well as in rural towns along the Cacao Coast, where students will have the chance to tour museums and historic sites, visit beaches, and try regional cuisine.
