The BSCS program for US and international students was established in 2003 upon the joint initiative of the three founding Directors, John Bickle, Péter Érdi and George Kampis, offering Semesters since 2004. In addition to US students, the program regularly enrolls part time and full time students from Hungary and the surrounding region. Home institutions of BSCS alumni include Carleton Coll., Reed Coll., Northwestern U., Kalamazoo Coll., U. Cincinnati, Binghamton U., Birmingham Southern Coll., U. Southern Connecticut, Dartmouth College, Vassar College, Franklin and Marshall, UC Berkeley, Middlebury College, Bates College and others. In recent years, the Program has been upgraded with improved facilities ensuring enhanced benefits to students. In the framework of BSCS, extended services with higher value added are available to students on the basis of individual agreements with selected sending Universities and Colleges. Starting January 2012, Tony Chemero has replaced John Bickle as US Director. Between 2003 and 2016 the program was run at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, Eötvös University. Since 2106 the program is hosted at the Department of Ethology.
