Salisbury University students have the opportunity to study Brazilian culture and history, Portuguese language, and international business at the Universidade do Sul Santa Maria in Florianopolis, Brazil through SU's long-time study abroad partner International Studies Abroad.

Brazil encompasses one-half of South America's land area, is home to one-half of South America's total population, and is the world's third largest democracy. As a nation of contrast, diversity, and rich cultural heritage, Brazil offers a study abroad experience unlike any other. Known for their warm and welcoming nature, Brazilians are experts in enjoying life to the fullest and celebrating the diverse influences that shape their history and culture.
ISA's Brazil program allows students to combine strong academic offerings with endless amounts of cultural experiences and outdoor activities. Both inside and outside the classroom, students will find themselves immersed not only in the Portuguese language but also in a a uniquely Brazilian way of life.
