PORT 250g is a GE course, Category II (Global Cultures and Traditions), and it does not have a language requirement. The program duration is four weeks, with the first week in Los Angeles and the last three weeks in Brazil. While in Brazil students will attend lectures, take a four-day study trip to Salvador, a day trip to Petrópolis, and make other visits of cultural interest to the course.  The course material will draw from literature, visual culture, music, and cultural theory. While in Rio students will live with a Brazilian host family.
