CIEE Liberal Arts Program in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil
Put your language studies into action, staying with a host family in a beach-lined big city midway up Latin America’s east coast. Whip your academic language skills into real-world shape during a month long intensive language and culture program. Then it’s off to school as usual – only at a Brazilian university with classes in Portuguese. Add in excursions and cultural activities that bring Brazilian history and culture to life like never before, and you have the experience of a lifetime.
Study abroad in Brazil and you will:
Learn Portuguese through a four-week intensive language and culture program prior to the semester, followed by semester-long language courses at various levels
Enroll in CIEE courses and in regular courses in UFBA and UCSAL
Participate in cultural and educational activities, including visits to museums, theater, music and dance performances, a candomblé ceremony, a soccer match, a percussion lesson, and more.
Enjoy an overnight trip to the gorgeous beach towns and colonial settlements of Ilheus and Itacare, in Bahia’s cocoa region, and excursions to explore other parts of Brazil’s distinct Northeast, plus many more cultural, academic and recreational explorations.
