Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME)

Posted by:
February 7, 2023

Are you passionate about the learning and teaching of mathematics? Would you like to spend a summer in a beautiful historical city, with one of the most vibrant cultures in Europe? How about learning in small classes where instructors challenge each student to deeply engage with the material?

Please consider Summer@BSME, a 6-week summer program in Budapest, Hungary, designed for those interested in the learning and teaching of secondary mathematics. Participants explore the Hungarian pedagogy, in which a strong and explicit emphasis is placed on problem solving, mathematical creativity, and communication.

Why Summer@BSME? Today’s teachers are expected to provide students with opportunities to struggle productively towards understanding, and the Hungarian pedagogy has the potential to play a critical role in this endeavor. At Summer@BSME, we are excited for our participants to develop and bring back this new perspective on mathematics education.

We are currently accepting applications for Summer 2023 (due April 1). Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so apply early! More information, including the online application, can be found at

If you have any questions, please contact our BSME office, either by email ( or by phone (507-786-3821).
