Clicking on any of the images that appear below the “Video Archive” bar (if you can’t see it on this page, just scrolldown a bit...) will cause a small but important part of a larger story to be told. The video shorts that will playwhen you click on these images have been categorically organized into sections to make it easier for you to findthe type of content you need or want.
The content of each video short involves the Design Research Center, or our graduate programs in Design withConcentrations in Design Research, or some of our design research projects. This portion of our websiteexists to help explain how and why we approach research from our unique, eclectically informed perspectivesas designers.
It also provides some insights about how we prepare MFA candidates, who have undergraduate design educationsand at least some professional experience as designers, to pursue career- and life-paths as design educators,researchers, project directors and managers in a variety of academic and professional settings.
Additionally, it articulates how we educate MA candidates, who have undergraduate educations in many areasoutside design, and who may or may not have professional experience in these disciplines, to pursue career- andlife-paths in the corporate arena and the not-for-profit sector, as well as in academia (some go on to pursue doctoraldegrees) as researchers, or as project developers, managers and investigators.
Each of the video shorts that can be accessed from this webpage was designed and produced at the Design ResearchCenter or within the Department of Design at the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Designusing the same equipment and facilities that our graduate students and faculty utilize on a daily basis.
