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

Excursions & Activities

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

  • Take a Study Tour trip to Salvador da Bahia and discover vibrant Afro-diaspora cultural traditions.
  • 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, Volunteer Opportunities, or Internships

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

Stay in Rio de Janeiro for the duration of this unique study abroad experience, or add on blocks in other CIEE Open Campus locations (Buenos Aires, Santiago-Chile, London, Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Cape Town) to experience more intercultural learning in Latin America, Europe and South Africa with CIEE’s Global Scholar program.

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 & Culture, Business, Communications, Journalism & New Media, Global & Community Health, International Relations & Political Science, or Sustainability and Environmental Sciences

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

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
