Study Abroad Opportunities for
Students of Spanish and Portuguese


Temple University’s summer study abroad programs allow you to use the world as your classroom. Students choose to study abroad during the summer for a variety of reasons. Many have academic requirements that do not allow them to spend an entire semester abroad. Some students want to improve their language skills, while others seek to experience daily life in another country. Finally, many students participate in short-term summer programs early in their college education, and then spend a semester or year abroad as juniors or seniors.

Brazil: Portuguese Language & Afro-Brazilian Culture
For students with a background or interest in Portuguese, Spanish, African-American studies, Latin American studies, music, dance, or art. Undergraduate credit available.
