Portuguese Course Exchange

The Portuguese Exchange was approved in 2012 in order to enhance the course offerings in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies across the University of North Carolina system.

Please contact Regina Felix ( if you have questions about the Portuguese Exchange.


Classes listed as Face-to-Face in ANY of the Exchanges are actually held via video conferencing.  You can attend from your HOME campus.

Students will benefit from the variety of course offerings and from exposure to faculty from UNC institutions across the state, including Appalachian State University, NC State University, UNC Asheville, UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Charlotte, UNC Wilmington, and Winston Salem State University.  

The Portuguese Exchange will offer lower and upper-level courses both in the Portuguese language as well as in transdisciplinary areas such as Brazilian Studies, Luso-African Studies, and Portuguese Studies.

Most courses will be offered through our interconnection of distance-learning classrooms which are linked by audio and video technology. Students may also link into these classrooms via their home computer and fully participate in the courses. Students can access the courses offered each semester through this site by clicking on the Courses tab in the Portuguese Course Exchange bar. 

Students interested in taking classes in the exchange should check with their advisor and the home campus department chair and review the information on the Guidelines page.
