“If, as we are commonly told, digital computing has revolutionized our world, we need new ways of studying and understanding that world. CCT is a great place to tackle these challenges. Our students actively pursue new models of interdisciplinary knowledge, and, more importantly, they demonstrate these models in class projects and research.”

Dr. J.R. Osborn, core faculty

This course introduces students to interdisciplinary and graduate studies in the Communication, Culture & Technology program. This class aims at helping students to develop an expertise so they can contribute to an intellectual community. At the same time the course will equip students with an academic and professional problem-solving framework. Students will explore interdisciplinarity in communications, cultural, media, and technology studies by taking the initial steps to identify the communities to which they want to matter, to determine what foundations/ assumptions/ viewpoints exist in said community, and to figure out how to contribute knowledge to the ongoing conversation
CCTP 5005 Student Projects

CCT strives to investigate technology as a dynamic part of social life. We study how technology, communication, and culture shape human interaction. But to get the complete picture, we must also investigate technology itself. This course is about how to do that.

In the elective course, CCTP 850 Digital Presence and Strategic Persuasion, students use the language of new media to present their academic and professional identities. Each student develops a rich, outward-facing e-portfolio that will reflect their growth, learning, and expertise in ways designed to appeal to potential employers and to provide a summative experience of their time in CCT.
