"One Nation of Many: Multiculturalism in Brazil and the United States"


  • Research Projects and Internships
  • Full Complement of Course Offerings
  • Improve Portuguese Proficiency

This exchange program was created through the support of the U.S. and Brazilian Departments of Education (FIPSE and CAPES). In addition to coursework, students participating in this exchange will conduct a research project and/or participate in an internship relating to multiculturalism. Brazil and the United States are characterized by profound diversity and inequalities derived from distinctions among race, ethnicity, gender, and religion. Understanding the nature and consequences of such social conditions is critical to the educational development of students as citizens of their respective nations and the world.
