Missouri-Portugal Summer Program in Lisbon

Study Abroad Portugal
Missouri-Portugal Program (MPP)
Study in Portugal this summer!

Choose either a 4 or 8-week session for Summer 2018

Courses available vary per session. Students may participate in one or both sessions. Courses are between 3 and 6 credits per session.
In 2016, the Missouri Consortium for International Program and Studies (MOCON), at the initiative of the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), began the Missouri-Portugal Program (MPP) in Lisbon. All MOCON member institutions may send students to the program. MPP works with colleagues at the Study in Portugal Network (SiPN). The Missouri-Portugal program and SiPN merge concentrated learning with a broad range of new experiences that develop the student as an individual, frequently leading to growth in personal responsibility, maturity, and increased intercultural competence. Students will receive academic-oriented study tours in order to discover all that Portugal provides off the tourist-beaten path.

The housing option is designed to maximize intercultural awareness. For example, wherever possible SiPN houses MPP students on the same floor as other international and/or Portuguese students studying in Lisbon. They also invite these other mobility students along on study tours on a space available basis, to deepen friendships and opportunities for intercultural learning.

Academic Calendar (Including the SiPN orientation sessions):

Summer 2018 (there are two 4-week, self-contained sessions):
