Finding Theses & Dissertations

Theses, and dissertations, are original works of research and scholarship prepared by graduate students, as part of the requirements for a graduate degree.

While theses and dissertations don't go through a blind peer-review process, the research is very much scrutinized and evaluated by experts. The research is conducted under the supervision of a group of internal and external professors, who form the thesis (or dissertation) committee, and the graduate student's supervisor. Parts of the original research may also be published in other forms of scholarly publications, such as journal articles, monographs and book chapters.

Theses and dissertations are useful sources of original research, and knowing how to locate them is essential. Use this guide to find:
