Experience Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal is one of the world’s oldest nation-states, with over 800 years of history. Located on the southwestern coast of Europe, Portugal and its capital city, Lisbon, have been at the center of various waves of “globalization” linking Europe to Africa, the Americas and Asia. Lisbon is still considered one of the cheapest cities in the European Union. Portugal has a mild Mediterranean climate with over 200 days of sun per year. It’s the perfect place to spend lots of time outdoors biking, hiking, sunbathing, or spending the afternoon in an outdoor cafe with friends. Portugal is a foodie’s paradise! Fresh fish – from grilled sardines to shellfish – is a must have in Lisbon.


Students will participate on the Study in Portugal Network (SiPN) program, the only program of its kind in Portugal, fully designed for North American students. The program offers is academically rigorous however flexible as it is designed to meet the needs of undergraduates from a variety of majors. Its core curriculum is focused on Portugal's place in Europe and Lisbon as a safe an attractive cosmopolitan hub from which to explore themes related to the larger Lusophone community of some 260 million people.
