The Portuguese Language Program at Rice offers accelerated courses in Portuguese for students who have a very good command of Spanish. The courses offered through CLIC guide students to understand the Portuguese-speaking culture and society through our focus on language awareness and critical language analysis. The Portuguese courses at CLIC focus primarily on the language as spoken in Brazil.
Before registering for a Portuguese course, take the Language Placement Test to find out which course is right for you.
CLIC offers merit scholarships for students who plan to study Portuguese abroad. Please see the merit scholarships page for more information and eligibility requirements.
