Student Profiles

“CCT has never asked me to shrink my passions down; in fact, the program has expanded them. Before enrolling, I knew nothing about the futurist and artificial intelligence fields. Now I am engrossed in them, and actively seeking ways to pair them with my narrative work.” ~ Kate Colwell, CCT ’20

Alumni Profiles

“I chose CCT 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 ’12
