Additional Active Learning Opportunities at Maryville University

We put students at the center of hands-on learning with technology that is built into the fabric of the curriculum. Students actively participate in the learning process by doing, making and interacting with each other and the environment around them, anytime and anywhere.


Building Rockets in Chemistry Class

Studying rocket science is fun. Building rockets and launching them in the quad is even more fun! Professor Spudich gives our science students a memorable hands-on learning opportunity when they build, launch, and sometimes troubleshoot their rockets.

Communication Students’ Portfolio Defense

Our Communication students don’t just complete homework assignments. Standing before industry professionals, professors, and their fellow students, defending their work against all inquiries, they graduate Maryville battle-tested and more prepared for the workplace.

Using Augmented Reality in Class

Maryville Students will encounter augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in their future professions, so we’re preparing them by exposing them to the technology now.

Rawlings Sports Business Management

Our students engage with professionals from Rawlings Co., which gives them a taste of what it’s like to work in the sport business industry with a product company.

Roller Coaster Tycoon Story

Maryville Game Design students recently had an opportunity to work on a real-world experience through internships and apprenticeships with Graphite Lab. They worked on the game Roller Coaster Tycoon Story, which is available on the iOS app store and Google Play.

Goat Day

Dr. Kyra Krakos’ Sustainability 150 students host Goat Day. The day is apart of their project management learning. They have to become experts on sustainability issues and learn how to present what they have learned to the community.

Opening Minds Through Art

Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) involves weekly gatherings on the Maryville campus for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Students in the Occupational Therapy program use paint, paper and conversation to connect with the artist in those who once headed businesses or ran households.

First-Year Experience Summit

The First-Year Experience Summit is a celebration of the outstanding work that students have participated in during the fall University Seminar classes. The University Seminar course helps students develop skills that will support them during their transition to life at Maryville.
