The UFMG Summer School on Brazilian Studies (SSBS) is a comprehensive course that offers students from all over the world an understanding of key aspects of Brazil from distinct perspectives.

Over two weeks of intense learning, sessions will cover the underpinnings of Brazilian politics, history, foreign relations, geology, law, economy, arts, culture and race.

The Summer School takes place at UFMG’s main campus in Belo Horizonte – the capital city of Brazil’s federal state of Minas Gerais – every month of July.
In previous years, the SSBS was adapted to take place entirely online, due to the global sanitary situation.

The SSBS 2024 is scheduled to take place from July 15, 2024 to July 26, 2024.
