Student Profiles

“I wanted to gain a variety of practical research skills to study media usage and public opinion from an interdisciplinary approach. I was also interested in the sociological and cultural components of media studies. With CCT, I have access to all of these perspectives and the flexibility to mix and match research approaches and disciplines.” ~ Erin Moroney, current CCT student

“I chose Communication, Culture & Technology because I wanted to make sense of all my interests. I was a tinkerer who dabbled with code, had an affinity for brand strategy and loved to write. CCT helped me turn my many interests into a focus and eventually a career.” ~ Deron Hogans, CCT 2012
