The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, in partnership with the departments of Portuguese, English and History, announces the 20th Annual Summer Program in Portuguese at UMass Dartmouth, June 24 – July 26, 2013. Situated in the heart of North America's oldest and largest Portuguese-speaking community, our program provides a unique cultural environment for learning Portuguese in a richly varied natural immersion setting.

For many years, the Summer Program in Portuguese has provided an excellent opportunity for students at all levels to improve their linguistic proficiency, while learning more about the Lusophone world, comprised of over 240 million people in eight countries on four continents and global diasporas. Intensive courses in beginning and intermediate Portuguese are supplemented with three online only courses: “Advanced Portuguese,” “Introduction to Portuguese Literature and Culture” and “Brazil: History and Culture.”

The cultural activities of the Summer Program include lectures by scholars in Luso-Afro-Brazilian studies, a film series (sponsored by Camões - Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua), concerts, outings to traditional festivals, Brazilian, Cape Verdean and Portuguese restaurants, tourist destinations, beaches, and other local points of interest.

The program’s high-quality, multifaceted educational experience is made more affordable through the availability of partial scholarships. Over the years, the program has been generously sponsored by the Luso-American Foundation. The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is April 30, 2013 for U.S. students and March 31 for international students, to allow time for visa processing. Scholarship applications may be considered after these dates, depending on the availability of funds. On-campus housing is available.
