Portuguese courses will focus on language, history, and life in the Lusophone World.

Portuguese language majors will follow a track of courses designed to develop their Portuguese language proficiency and cultural understanding.  

Cadets can choose to be a Portuguese language major or combine Portuguese and another language for a dual language major. Each of these options can be taken as an honors program. Language majors also work well as part of a double major with another department.
