Budapest Semesters in Mathematics

Spend part of your undergraduate studies in Budapest. Learn mathematics from leading Hungarian scholars—in English.

CHC senior Derek Hanely just participated in this program.  Here is what he had to say:

This past summer, I had the opportunity to study mathematics in one of Europe’s most important cultural centers– Budapest. While abroad, I partook in an intensive Hungarian language course, and under the tutelage of renowned Hungarian professors, I learned some combinatorics and abstract algebra. While it may sound cliche, this trip truly was the most beneficial and influential experience of my life. The mathematics aside, this experience taught me how to effectively communicate with individuals who do not speak my native language, it provided me with a more holistic understanding of international relations, and I developed a significantly deeper appreciation for foreign culture. You really cannot understand how beneficial it can be to put yourself out of your comfort zone until you give it a try. Learning your discipline in a country in which you do not speak the language really forces you to develop new skills, and you ultimately come out a more informed and better individual.

This experience along with my internship at NASA IV&V last summer has been pivotal in assisting me along the rather challenging path of choosing my future career. Both have opened my eyes to the possibilities that await after graduation, and they’ve given me confidence in my ability. Internships, study abroads, and undergraduate research are the experiences that make a college experience fulfilling and meaningful, and I’d encourage every student to consider participating in at least one of those if possible.
