Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to define the importance of research and various research methods in the design discipline; apply various research methods in the design discipline; and communicate students’ own research papers in a clear and concise manner toward an audience.
This unit is designed to prepare the groundwork for a dissertation in the third level of study leading to an Honors Degree in Design. It will introduce students to the various research methodologies of Design History. This will entail choosing a topic, making a thorough literature search, compiling a critical bibliography, and presenting a plan for the further development of the idea in whatever form approved by the unit tutor and the teaching team. Students will research a case study and present their methodology as a 20-minute verbal presentation in a research seminar.
