The UFMG Summer School on Brazilian Studies intends to give students from all over the world an understanding of key aspects of Brazil from distinct perspectives. The instructors are professors from UFMG (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais), a leading Brazilian university, recently ranked 5th for best higher education institutions in Latin America by Britain’s Times Higher Education. The course is confirmed to take place once again in July through online platforms. The exact dates will soon be confirmed.

Over two weeks of intense learning, meetings will cover the underpinnings of Brazilian politics, history, foreign relations, geography, law, economy, arts and culture. The Summer School usually takes place at UFMG’s main campus in Belo Horizonte – the capital city of Brazil’s federal state of Minas Gerais – every month of July. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 edition will be entirely online. Lectures on selected topics will be delivered in the morning (at Brasília Time) through distance learning platforms. After the lectures, there will be Portuguese for Foreigners classes. During the afternoon, participants will be taken on online tours to places of historical and artistic relevance.

Why You Should Take The Summer School?
This course aims at providing students from around the globe with a solid background in Brazil and Brazilian studies, shedding light on crucial aspects of South America’s giant country and the region in itself. As the world looks ever more interconnected and multipolar, Brazil strikes as a rising power whose understanding might become an asset for future generations of scholars and practitioners, decision makers and takers. Within the ambit of this program, lectures will be delivered on topics as diverse as politics, history, foreign affairs, economy, geography, law, arts and culture, creating a mosaic of highly qualified information and analysis. Introductory classes of Portuguese language – the sixth most spoken idiom in the world today – will help the course taker dig deeper into Brazil’s complexities and make better sense of the country’s subtleties.
