Question: How do I find theses and dissertations?


To find electronic versions of dissertations and theses, search in the Dissertations & Theses Global database (also know as Dissertation Abstracts). Please note that not all dissertations or theses will be available in full text. Some older works may not have been digitized yet. Also, some authors choose to restrict access to their work for a set number of years after completion.

Some NYU dissertations may also be available in print or on microform in our collection.  For more information about dissertations and theses, see our guide.
