Lunch & Learn with UGA’s Portuguese & Russian Flagship Programs
August 31 @ 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm
REGISTRATION REQUIRED – Sign up via the Honors Network
Are you a first or second-year student considering taking a foreign language like Portuguese or Russian? Do you want to get more out of your language learning experience?
Come to this Lunch & Learn session on Wednesday, August 31, to hear from Dr. Bruno Sales, Assistant Director of UGA’s Portuguese Flagship Program, and Dr. Sofia Ivanova, Coordinator of UGA’s Russian Flagship Program. They will discuss what a language flagship program looks like and the opportunities these programs offer to highly-motivated UGA students.
The Portuguese and Russian Flagship Programs are intended for undergraduate students with a unique commitment to reach the highest levels of Portuguese or Russian and apply those skills in a professional context. Both programs offer an unprecedented opportunity for motivated students to internationalize their academic experience. More than a study abroad program, Flagship programs are structured to complement the student’s major area of study from the moment they arrive on campus. Participating students benefit from accelerated classes, regular small-group or one-on-one tutorials, language partners abroad, rich cultural events, support for immersion experiences both in the US and abroad, and a capstone year studying at a leading university in Brazil or Kazakhstan, including a semester long internship in the target language. Because these programs typically take 4-5 years to complete, it is recommended that students begin the programs as early as possible in their undergraduate careers – ideally, as first years.
This Lunch & Learn session will be held Wednesday, August 31 from 12:20-1:10pm in 102 Moore Hall. Please make sure to be on time. Attendance is limited to the first 28 students who RSVP. Lunch from Barberitos will be provided.
While most relevant to first and second-year students, all are welcome. To register, sign up on the Honors network under “Events.” The Honors network student login page is here: https://honors.uga.edu/network/student.
