Program Description:

Rio
CIEE Liberal Arts Program in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Just like the U.S., Brazil is a melting pot of cultures – a nation of immigrants who infused society with a colorful multicultural and multiethnic tapestry with influences from native Brazilians, Portuguese, and Africans. You’ll study this tapestry, and become part of it yourself, on CIEE’s Liberal Arts program in Rio de Janeiro. A rigorous language program, engaging courses, homestays, and cultural activities bring you into the depths of this exciting metropolis and the gorgeous landscapes that lie beyond.
