Budapest Semester Math Equivalencies

Students interested in studying abroad on any CC-approved program need to complete the CC Internal Application process in Summit. In addition, students should note that while you are abroad in a non-English-speaking country, CC policy requires you take the local language. With BSM, this can be fulfilled either through a pre-session (non-credit bearing) Hungarian crash course offered in Budapest before the semester or a traditional language course in Hungarian during the semester. Course info is here.

Pre-requisites and timing: The BSM program requires at least one of Abstract Algebra I (MA321) or Real Analysis I (MA375), preferably both. CC’s Mathematics Dept offers MA375 and MA321 once every semester (both of which are required for the math major). In terms of timing your semester at BSM, most students aim for the spring semester of their junior year. It's also possible for students to take MA321 and MA375 in their junior year and head to Budapest in the first semester of their senior year, but can sometimes interfere with the capstone requirement.

Note:  In the cases where a specific Colorado College course is listed, the matching Budapest Semester course will satisfy Department of Mathematics and Computer Science major and minor requirements in the same way that the CC course would.  For instance, GAL is a direct substitute for MA421 and would satisfy the “advanced sequence requirement” when linked with MA321.
