The dean of the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences will be traveling to Brazil later this semester to explore the possibility of a new foreign exchange program.
Dean Pamela Gates said the college is partnering with a few other colleges on campus to create a program allowing students to study abroad in the South American country. The program would allow some Brazilian students to study at Central Michigan University, as well.
“(Students) would pay for 15 credits here and get to study at the (partner college) for free,” Gates said. “We have other programs like it currently as well.”
Sarah Buckley, coordinator of communications and web developer for CHSBS, said the work on developing the exchange program is still in its early stages.
Buckly added that Gates will be traveling with other CMU representatives later this semester to learn more about the educational opportunities available for students in Brazil.
The date of their visit has not been established.
