HPOA00701U  Portuguese - Introduction to Area Studies

Volume 2014/2015
‘Area Studies’ is the term used to describe the multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary study of a specific geographical, linguistic or cultural area of the world. This introductory course provides basic analytical tools (concepts, theories and methods) from history, sociology, anthropology, politics and economics so as to view how different disciplines view and study the world. Students will learn how to organize and work with different types of data and to present their findings in appropriate academic form, oral and written.

This course will be taught in close collaboration with the Introduction to the Portuguese-speaking world so that new knowledge can immediately be applied to real-world contexts.
