If you have finished the course and have already graduated then use the past:

  • I took calculus in my undergraduate studies.

    It's a sentence you could have on your resume or implying you have the required knowledge in calculus at undergraduate level.

The present perfect would imply you are still following that course:

  • I have taken calculus in my undergraduate studies.

    And it leaves an open situation for the future. For example, justifying why you want to drop or continue a course on calculus after you graduate.
