Dissertations and Theses

Dissertations and Theses

In Library resources, the words "theses" or "thesis" used alone includes both doctoral dissertations and master's theses.

The primary database for searching and identifying theses and dissertations is ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global. It includes millions of full-text dissertations, the majority of which were published after 1997, but hundreds of thousands of titles published before 1997 are also available. In addition to the full-text content, citations for over 5 million dissertations and theses are included.
