Faculty & Staff

A professor from an ACM college typically serves as visiting faculty director of the program, teaching a course in her/his specialty as part of the PUC-Rio Brazilian Culture curriculum and supervising the students’ optional independent study projects. You are encouraged to enroll in the ACM visiting faculty member’s course.

Your elective courses and the required Portuguese as a Second Language course are taught by PUC-Rio faculty, who have experience teaching students from colleges in the US and other countries. PUC-Rio was the first university in Brazil to offer Portuguese as a Second Language and has provided strong support for international students through its International Programs Office for more than 20 years.
