PORT 101, 102, 203, 204, 401, and 402 are offered in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. If you studied Portuguese in high school or have learned it experientially, you may arrange to take a placement test by contacting the Portuguese Advisor, Richard Vernon, at AP, IB, and college transfer credits can be used to satisfy the Gen Ed foreign language requirement, but if you wish to continue your study of Portuguese, we recommend that you take the placement exam to ensure you enroll in the most appropriate level.

For students who have experienced success learning other languages and wish to study Portuguese, PORT 401 and PORT 402 are options. PORT 401 (levels one and two) is designed for experienced language learners who have little or no previous study of Portuguese and who wish to move quickly through beginning Portuguese. PORT 402 (levels three and four) is designed for students who have completed PORT 401 or who have excelled in PORT 102 and wish to move more quickly through intermediate Portuguese.

For students who place beyond PORT 204, there is one more advanced course available for fall: PORT 310 (Advanced Communication in Portuguese: Media & Entertainment).
