Course Offerings

Communication, Culture & Technology students design their own curricula with the guidance of faculty advisors. Students must take three required courses: CCTP-505, CCTP-506, and a research methods course. The rest of their curriculum is made up of electives which may include additional research methods courses). While electives are usually CCT courses, students may also take courses offered elsewhere at Georgetown University or even at other DC-area universities. These options require the approval of Ai-Hui Tan, CCT’s Director of Academic Affairs. See CCT M.A. Requirements for more about building a curriculum.

For information about CCT courses or to see courses offered elsewhere on campus, students may search the Registrar’s Schedule of Classes.
