What is the STIC program?

The Student-Initiated Course (STIC) program helps students design, develop, and teach courses under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Any student interested in teaching an undergraduate course can apply to teach an official 1-2 credit class. Visit the apply page to learn more.

Can I take a STIC?

Of course! There are 15 STICs being offered during the Spring 2018 semester. Check them out on the catalog page.

What does it mean to teach a STIC?

You and your faculty advisor come up with the course topic, design all the material and assignments, and decide how to deliver the content to the class.

Who runs this?

STICs is a student-run experimental program with support from the Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship out of the Office of the Provost. Initial schools and departments at UMD who have partnered with STICs include Computer Science, Business and Management, Mathematics, Music, Environmental Science, and more to come.
