Recognized worldwide for its soccer stars, samba, and beautiful beaches, Brazil today has emerged as a political and economic leader in Latin America and the rest of the world. Brazil encompasses one-half of South America’s land area, is home to one-half of South America’s total population, and is the world’s third largest democracy. As a nation of contrast, diversity, and rich cultural heritage, Brazil offers a study abroad experience unlike any other. Known for their warm and welcoming nature, Brazilians are experts in enjoying life to the fullest and celebrating the diverse influences that shape their history and culture.

Florianópolis, a city situated on an island in southeastern Brazil, is modern and cosmopolitan yet also blessed with tremendous natural beauty. Floripa, as it is called by locals, showcases over 42 beaches, rolling mountains, Atlantic rainforest, soft white sand dunes, and an array of offshore islands. Florianópolis consistently ranks as one of Brazil’s top five safest cities and in the past ten years has become one of Brazil’s premier destinations.
