The UNDERGRADUATE PORTUGUESEMAJOR and MINOR Effective Spring 2000

The major in Portuguese consists of a minimum of 30 semester hours (normally ten 3-credit courses), and the minor of 15 hours (normally five 3-credit courses), beyond POR 3010* with a grade of C or better (S/U not allowed). These classes may be in language/civilization (POR prefix), literature/culture (POW prefix), or special-topic courses in translation (PRT, FOL prefixes; such courses count towards the major/minor if reading/writing is done in Portuguese). Majors normally take four classes at the 4000-level, and minors two. Students transfering credits toward the major should take their 4000-level Portuguese classes at UF. Minors must complete nine hours at UF. Students wishing to earn major/minor credits on UF-sponsored programs abroad should make arrangements before departure. Those majoring or minoring in Portuguese who have no previous experience in a Lusophone country are especially encouraged to enroll in the UF summer B study-abroad program in Rio de Janeiro to obtain six credits for language and culture. Two independent studies (POW 4905) may be used for a major, one for a minor.

*NB. POR 3010 Introduction to Portuguese and Brazil does not count towards the major/minor.

The following language/civilization courses are offered regularly:
POR 3242 Oral and Written Practice
POR 3243 Composition and Conversation
POR 3500 Luso-Brazilian Civilization (or equivalent on summer program)**
