Carta

Course exploration based on the choices of Stanford students

Carta helps students learn about course choices


Carta helps students explore new fields, learn about classes, make thoughtful choices, and plan their workloads.

Carta is a research project


How does an informational platform affect students' course decision making? How do student pathways vary across demographic groups?

Carta helps educators observe how students move through college


What kind of classes do students consider but do not enroll? Do students explore courses across disciplines?
