This is the first version of the 2020-21 General Catalog. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The undergraduate minor in Portuguese requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in Portuguese courses, including 12 s.h. in University of Iowa courses numbered PORT:2500 or above; credit earned in a University of Iowa study abroad program also may be counted toward the minor. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. Furthering Language Incentive Program (FLIP) credit may not be applied toward the minor. A maximum of 3 s.h. of transfer credit may be applied toward the minor.

Students may apply up to 3 s.h. from PORT:2500 Accelerated Intermediate Portuguese toward the minor. One 3 s.h. course taught in English in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese or one course taught in Spanish numbered SPAN:2000 or above can be applied toward the minor, but not both. All other courses must be numbered PORT:2500 or above. Students can identify courses taught in English by viewing the course description for each course.

All students planning to complete a minor in Portuguese are strongly encouraged to consult with Portuguese faculty advisors.
