CIEE Liberal Arts Program in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Just like the U.S., Brazil is a melting pot of cultures – a nation of immigrants who infused society with a colorful multicultural and multiethnic tapestry with influences from native Brazilians, Portuguese, and Africans. You’ll study this tapestry, and become part of it yourself, on CIEE’s Liberal Arts program in Rio de Janeiro. A rigorous language program, engaging courses, homestays, and cultural activities bring you into the depths of this exciting metropolis and the gorgeous landscapes that lie beyond.
Study abroad in Rio and you will:
Study abroad in one of the most beautiful urban settings in the world and the cultural epicenter of Latin America's largest, fastest growing, and most dynamic economy
Learn Portuguese through language instruction specifically designed for international students at Brazil's top higher education institution
Volunteer at local NGOs, schools, and other organizations as part of an integrated CIEE community engagement program
Immerse yourself in Brazilian academic and social life through homestays with local families, combined with studies on a vibrant urban university campus
Witness firsthand the legendary economic and cultural development that defines Brazil today
