During the ILCP and throughout the semester CIEE invites guest lectures to the study center to speak about Brazilian topics or current events. So far this semester we´ve had guest lecturer Sean McIntyre Ph.D. speak about the Literary and Intellectual History of Brazil. It´s an election year in Brazil and the campaign hype is everywhere. To help our students understand the political and electoral process we invited political historian Pedro Teixeirense to explain what the students were witnessing around them. (below)

Semester classes begin at our host universities
Once again course registration and add/drop day went off without a hitch. Our students had no problem confirming all the courses they wanted to take. Both of our universities, PUC-Rio and ESPM, allow our students to choose from 100´s of courses and our staff advises the students in the selection process.
