Program Description:
Brazil Banner

With its physical beauty and welcoming social environment, Brazil is the largest country in Latin America.  Its diverse and vibrant culture offers an ideal setting for students of Portuguese to improve their language skills by enrolling directly in the university alongside their Brazilian peers and to immerse themselves in one of the world's most captivating societies. 

Belo Horizonte, also known as the Garden City, is the capital of Minas Gerais, a prosperous mining region in the mountains about 250 miles north of Rio de Janeiro.  Home to 2.5 million people, the city has a pronounced sense of community and family that students find inviting.

Students enroll at the private Pontifícia Universidade Católica de Minas Gerais, Middlebury's host institution, in courses in the humanities and social sciences.
