UMass in Lisbon, sponsored by the UMass Dartmouth Center for Portuguese Studies with the support of the Luso-American Foundation, offers American students the opportunity to spend a semester or year in the vibrant capital city of Lisbon learning about the vast Portuguese-speaking world and European Union. As the only residential study abroad program in Portugal managed directly by a major American university, UMass in Lisbon provides unrivaled access to one of the world's most strategic centers of language and culture. Through our partnership with The University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL) and the Technical University of Lisbon's Superior Institute of Economics and Management (ISEG-UTL), students will have a wide array of curricular choices in both English and Portuguese, including UMass courses taught on site by both UMass and Portuguese faculty and language/culture study at all levels. A significant number of field trips will complement classroom learning, and living accommodations will be shared with European ERASMUS and Portuguese university students. Internships, home-stays, and service-learning opportunities are also planned, with administrative assistance available 24/7. Students may study for a semester, a year, or during the summer.
