Each year, a portion of CCT students choose to pursue the Master's thesis. This project serves as a capstone experience which integrates and extends the knowledge acquired during studies in the program and can serve as a representation of students' analytical abilities for professional purposes or for further graduate studies. Find out more about the thesis-writing process at CCT here or explore some recent examples below.
