The Budapest Semesters in Mathematics offers an opportunity for an off-campus experience in mathematics. One can choose the fall or spring semester (most Carleton students opt for the fall). A summer option is also available.

The Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education is a six-week summer program designed for undergraduates interested in teaching middle or high school mathematics.

For more information about each Budapest program, visit the program website. In addition there will be an information session on Tuesday, January 16 from 3-4 pm in CMC 206. Please note that to apply to either program you will be required to complete three forms:  a Carleton Math/Stats Department application now available and due by 8 am on Friday, January 26, 2024, a BSM/BSME application, and an OCS Application for approval of non-Carleton Program due on April 11, 2024. The BSM/BSME application states that it requires two recommendation letters from mathematics faculty members. Instead, our department sends in one recommendation as a department to the Budapest program on your behalf.  When you are prompted to enter two recommenders from Carleton, enter the names Sue Jandro and Deanna Haunsperger. You do not need to ask any other faculty members to recommend you.
