The Teaching of Portuguese in the Colleges and Universities of the United States.
Cavaco, Gilbert R.
This publication is the fourth report of a survey of Luso-Brazilian studies being conducted in the United States. The object of the survey is to determine the extent to which the Portuguese language and Luso-Brazilian studies are taught in the United States. Three hundred and twenty institutions are listed by state with the following information given for each: (1) whether Portuguese is accepted as foreign language requirement for admission, (2) what courses and/or degrees are offered, (3) whether the present program will be expanded, (4) whether Portuguese will be taught in the future, and (5) whether study abroad in Portuguese is possible. In addition to this information on colleges and universities, data is given on elementary and high school Portuguese enrollments, other schools teaching Portuguese, schools which have discontinued the teaching of Portuguese, schools considering introducing Portuguese, and night schools on the high school and college levels which offer Portuguese. Elementary and high school course descriptions are listed alphabetically by country, state, and institution. It is hoped that this information will help to increase present enrollments and that it will influence more schools and colleges to introduce Portuguese as part of their curriculum. (DO)
