Design research methods provide a human-centered approach — one that places a deep and empathetic understanding of users at the center of finding innovative solutions to complex problems. Parsons considers research an integral part of the learning experience, with students and faculty working together to challenge existing paradigms and advance emerging scholarship and practice. Many of Parsons’ research efforts are supported through creative collaborations with industry and community partners. Below are links to just some of the research laboratories at Parsons and other schools and colleges of The New School.
