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

Alumni Profiles

“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

Faculty Profiles

“Those who hire Communication, Culture & Technology grads know: in addition to technical skills, they have something even more valuable at the leadership level – a conceptual, ‘big picture’ understanding of the complex web of cultural, political, and economic relations in which our technologies are embedded.” ~ Martin Irvine, Founding Director and Core Faculty
