An innovative approach to learning innovation

You have a big idea. We’ll help you bring it to life (and maybe even bring it to market) through our interdisciplinary creative technologies program.

Combining the liberal arts, computer science, design thinking and business, you’ll hone an entrepreneurial mindset, master interpersonal communication skills and develop a firm grasp of the business and economics of tech.

You’ll be guided passionate professors and surrounded by fellow innovators as you develop and pitch your ideas, hone your problem solving skills, and prepare for a life and career as big as your ideas.

Hands On

Don’t wait to innovate. Manage actual (College-supplied) funds through the Berry Investment Group, participate in hackathons and pitch competitions, work as a paid employee in the Berry business office, and publish your research in our undergraduate business and economics journal.

Not only did Alec play football and participate in drama productions while at Berry, the discovery of his passion for creative technologies inspired him to start and run his own business, HoloView, in his junior year. “Berry has prepared me more for life after college than I think any other school could,” he states. Alec is now graduating from the University of Colorado in the masters program in Creative Technologies and Design.
