All TnCIS programs are academic in nature and course work that takes advantage of the program location will be the central focus. Programs offered by TnCIS through any member institution are in keeping with SACSCOC policies for each respective institution where compliance is monitored at the institutional level. TnCIS program courses are for credit only.
In Brazil, students will enroll in ONE course. For more information about each of these courses, including pre-requisites and syllabi, use the button provided below.
The Brazil program is designed to provide our students with a choice of coursework in Music, Biology, Nutrition, and Marketing.
Music is everywhere in Brazilian culture and day-to-day life. Performances of Brazilian music occur in concert halls, taverns and in any place people gather socially, and our students will greatly benefit from learning about the art form from its primary source.
Students in the Biology course will take advantage of the site locations in Brazil, which include coastal zones and tropical rain forests, as part the country’s diverse ecosystems and areas specified for travel. As students begin to understand the organization of life, energy flow and metabolism, and interaction and information transfer of life; Brazil is able to provide the biodiversity for a practical learning experience.
Brazil is a great venue to learn about nutrition and health. Brazil provides students the opportunity to learn about major dietary issues because of its diverse ethnic populations. As the influences of this diversity can be seen in its multicultural mix of foods and influences on diet and health.
Brazil has one of the most vibrant economy in the world. In the marketing course, key principles will be illustrated with Brazilian examples--both in the classroom and in country.
