Carillon Studio

Workboard with sticky notes for design thinkingYour time at Maryland will hold some of the best experiences in your life. However, these years will also be filled with difficult decisions. The Carillon studio is a weekly one-credit, 20-person course where you will learn to use design thinking to creatively approach problem solving and develop a more satisfying and intentional college experience, aligned with your interests and goals.

During the 10-week course you can expect to work in teams, share personal reflections, learn about University resources from guest speakers, and develop a four-semester plan.

Aside from the 2 hours of class, you will use time outside of the classroom to engage in experiences that will allow you to explore campus and reflect on what your ideal Maryland career looks like. Through a combination of presentations, creative exercises, and homework assignments you will put into practice design principles to make the most of your time at UMD. The class meets once a week, with a very manageable amount of work. The more you put in to the studio will determine how much you get out of it.

The Carillon Seminar Course is a Fearless Ideas Course from the Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
