Requirements

Prerequisite: Port 8 or PORT 9

The Modified Major in Lusophone Studies consists of ten courses, at least six of which must be in Portuguese and the remaining four from appropriate Major-level courses offered by other departments.
 

The six Portuguese courses must be distributed as follows:

1) Survey Courses PORT 20

2) Upper level courses (PORT 35.01, PORT 60-63), Language Study Abroad Plus (PORT 10 and 12), Foreign Study Program (PORT 35 and 36, and Independent Study (PORT 83). Students must take four of the courses in this list.

One Independent Study (PORT 83) may also count as an upper level course for the Modified Major. The Department projects its upper-level offerings two years in advance so that students can thoughtfully plan an individualized course of study in consultation with the Major Advisor. Students interested in pursuing an Independent Study must identify their topic and faculty advisor and present a proposal to their faculty advisor and to the Department for approval no later than the seventh week of the term preceding the term they wish to undertake the Independent Study.

3) Culminating Experience: Senior Seminar (PORT 80)

Students pursuing a Modified Major in Lusophone Studies whose primary language is Portuguese must take the Senior Seminar (PORT 80) as one of their six upper-level courses. This course fulfills the Culminating Experience required of all seniors.
