Open Campus in Rio De Janeiro
Rio De Janeiro Open Campus

Rio de Janeiro is all about street life; the social and cultural life of the city is all out in the open. Rio is the third largest metropolitan area in South America and the most visited city in the southern hemisphere. Known for its stunning natural beauty, Carnival celebrations, musical culture, and renowned beaches. Rio’s iconic landmarks include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and Maracanã stadium, one of the world's largest football stadiums.

The Culture

Study Tour

Embark on a two-night/three-day study tour included in your program. Explore Foz do Iguaçu, the 7 largest in the State of Paraná and take in the beautiful Iguaçu falls. Or, immerse yourself in Paraty's culture and musical events, a town known for hosting FLIP – Festa Literaria Internacional de Paraty, an annual Literary Festival that brings people to Paraty to discuss literary works and pay homage to national literary heroes. 

Excursions & Activities

During your study abroad in Rio, you may enjoy some of these activities:

  • Take a Study Tour trip and discover Brazil.
  • See why Brazilians are mad about football by attending a live match at the Maracanã, one of the world´s biggest soccer stadium.
  • Take percussion lessons with professional samba players.
  • Immerse yourself in Rio’s rich local culture during Carnival and many other festivities.
  • Experience a capoeira lesson.
  • Take a hike on one of the many trails through the Atlantic Forest that envelopes the city. You can even hike to the top of Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statues awaits you.

Projects and Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities: give back and create a deeper connection to Rio de Janeiro. In a country known for urban poverty, you will gain as much as you give, helping with education, health, or community building. Teach English, foster professional skills in women, and much more.

Students interested in one of the following Academic Projects must submit additional materials as part of their course selection:

Service-Learning: combine course-based learning with practical, relevant project experience to meet a community-defined need.

​Research: pursue a research project of your own design incorporating independent and local fieldwork.

The program details

Students enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Rio the entire time or spend other blocks at our Global Institute locations in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Madrid, Monteverde, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatan.

This program offers students a series of courses designed to help students explore the dynamics of this Latin American nation and its culture.  Students may select one of six academic tracks: Language, Literature, and Culture; Business; Communications, Journalism and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; or STEM and Society.

Courses are mostly taught in English, by CIEE faculty; Portuguese language classes are available at different levels.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

  • GRADING

    The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students’ grades are based on attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and midterm and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Each course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Rio when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

Curriculum

Program Credit

  • 6 semester credits for one block
  • 12 semester credits for two blocks
  • 15 - 18 semester credits for three blocks

Students are required to enroll in two 3-credit courses each block. Students attending the program for all three blocks in a semester may select one block in which to enroll in only one 3-credit class (recommended for the block of the Academic Project, where applicable).  Each course is 3 semester credits, unless otherwise noted in the syllabus. During the on-site orientation, students may add the non-credit “Survival Portuguese” course to their normal credit load.

CIEE Academic Projects are approximately 100-120 total hours of field-based work, service-learning, or independent research hours, plus 15 seminar hours and meetings with CIEE faculty advisors, for 3 semester / 4.5 quarter credits.  Students applying for an Academic Project will be required to submit additional materials during the course selection process.
