Because each CCTer builds an individual curriculum out of a wide array of electives, the careers that graduates pursue vary according to each person’s goals. Our alumni take their degree into diverse fields: consulting, non-profit management, public administration, media relations, information sciences, product design, education, journalism, among many others. Some graduates continue on to top Ph.D. programs and careers in academia.
Despite their differences, all CCTers offer these aptitudes that are high-demand qualities in a rapidly changing world:
- applying creative thinking, critical empathy and analytical focus to solving problems
- communicating easily with people who don’t share jargon or assumptions
- providing sound perspectives on how technology impacts social behavior.
These are skills that work wherever CCTers choose to apply them, giving them the ability to adapt and adjust to career opportunities in ways that suit them. Rather than training for one established industry, our students are preparing for leadership roles in new burgeoning fields.
I came to CCT right out of undergrad with no true sense of where I was going and what I wanted to do. CCT empowered me with a depth and breadth of knowledge that gave me confidence to pursue multiple career tracks. I’m eternally grateful for that experience.
