Portuguese Cognates

A Portuguese cognate course is a course in which a majority of the content focuses on Portuguese studies, but which does not give instruction primarily in Portuguese. The following courses have been identified as possible cognate courses for Portuguese minors.

Important information about cognate credit:
    • Portuguese minors are allowed to receive a maximum of nine credits toward the minor (three
cognate courses)
    • If you believe you have found a course not on this list that may count as a Portuguese cognate, fill out an RLL Portuguese Cognate Request Form, obtain a copy of the syllabus for the class, and meet with a Portuguese faculty advisor for approval.
