Center for Brazil Studies

The Center for Brazil Studies is a hub for teaching, research and outreach relating to Brazil at the University of Oklahoma.

We work in cooperation with other OU programs/centers, departments, and colleges, as well as with Brazilian institutions, academics, and professionals, to provide the OU faculty and students with opportunities to develop language skills (Portuguese), to develop substantive knowledge on/professional experience in Brazil, to engage in contemporary Brazilian debates and to engage in research in, about and with Brazil.

Through these multiple activities, we work to make OU a force in Brazil studies, recognized in the United States and internationally.
