Portuguese Minor

At Pitzer College, Field Groups (similar to a discipline or department) organize major requirements and courses.

The minor in Portuguese offers students the opportunity to become proficient in the Portuguese language, study the history and culture of the Lusophone world, and participate in an immersion experience. The minor is an ideal complement for students pursuing majors in Latin American studies or romance languages, and a way to open up access to Lusophone communities for students majoring in a variety of fields.
