Dissertations and Theses

UTSA Dissertations & Theses

Since Spring semester 2014, all UTSA theses and dissertations are submitted electronically to ProQuest Dissertations & Theses:

The Graduate School eliminated the hard copy requirement for theses and dissertations beginning Spring semester 2014, therefore the Libraries will not have hard copies beyond Fall semester 2013. In the past, each UTSA student who completed a thesis or dissertation submitted two unbound copies to the Graduate School (1974-2013).  These two copies were sent to the Libraries. One copy was added to the circulating collection and another was sent to the UTSA Archives located at the Institute of Texan Cultures. 

For a hard copy of a thesis or dissertation produced at UTSA prior to Spring 2014, search Print Catalog.  Some theses and dissertations are available on microfilm.

We occasionally purchase theses and dissertations from other institutions that are of interest to our patrons. These items are cataloged and classified by subject, and are therefore intermingled in the stacks. Searching Print Catalog will retrieve these items as well.
