Brazilian Studies
The goal of Brazilian Studies within Global Studies at AU is to apply knowledge about Brazil and the Portuguese language to real-world problems and international issues. Beyond obtaining proficiency in the fifth most spoken language in the world, Brazilian Studies prepares students to think critically and argue persuasively about a range of subjects that involve but are not limited to Brazil, including migration, urbanisation, economics, government and the environment. The programme is applied and project-centred, and it provides students with important conceptual tools from the social sciences and cultural studies.
