Portuguese is one of the many languages offered by the Department of Languages and Linguistics.  Portuguese courses may be taken to satisfy the Liberal Arts foreign language requirement, or to enhance one’s program of study as an elective.

Latin, Portuguese, and German
Students who have acquired a significant knowledge of any of these languages through high school study (usually two years or more) or by some other means are urged to consult the department’s placement director for advising. Students with no or inadequate knowledge of either of these languages should enroll in the first-semester course.
