Accelerated Portuguese Abroad is the study of elementary Portuguese language and Brazilian culture in Bahia. The course will use contextual-based learning, cultural immersion, home stays, a trip to the island of Morro de São Paulo and to the interior national park in Lençóis. These different cultural experiences are meant to teach students regionally specific vocabulary, communication techniques, and cultural content from northeastern Brazil.
Studies in Chemistry: The Science of Painted Art will explore actual artwork in the laboratory and examine the composition of paintings. Directed toward students, curators, and artists, the class will take a hands-on approach to the science behind art, forgery detection, and how humans create and perceive color.
