Find UA theses & dissertations

Use the UA Theses & Dissertations Repository, to locate UA dissertations and masters theses submitted to the library from 1895-present. You can search or browse by author, title, discipline (program) or date.

Looking for theses from the Honors College? (UA Campus Repository, paper copies from 1960s-2005 located in Special Collections)

Several UA departments maintain their own archives of dissertations, masters theses, and other reports (including materials not submitted to the library). Check with individual departments.

  • The Arizona State Museum (ASM) Library collection includes master's theses from the American Indian Studies and Anthropology programs that are not available at the UA Libraries. Search the ASM online catalog to find theses in their non-circulating research collection and visit the ASM Library and Archives for more information on location and hours.

UA faculty, staff, and students can request dissertations and theses from other institutions through interlibrary loan. If you're a non-UA affiliate, you may be able to borrow UA theses and dissertations through your local library's interlibrary loan system.

Dissertations from the UA and many other U.S. and Canadian universities can be purchased online through ProQuest UMI Dissertation Express.
