Dissertations and theses completed by students of Syracuse University graduate programs are collected and maintained by Syracuse University Libraries. These works document the wide range of academic research completed by Syracuse University students over the course of the University's history.
Full text and previews of dissertations from 1953 to the present and for theses from 2021 to the present are available online at ProQuest Dissertations and Theses @ Syracuse University.
Full text of dissertations and selected theses from 2009 to the present are available online on SURFACE, the Syracuse University Institutional Repository.
Dissertations and theses are also available in print or microfilm at Syracuse University Libraries and may be searched for in the Catalog. The University stopped accepting print dissertations and theses in 2011, so for works completed from 2012 to the present, use the online resources above.
The University Archives at the Special Collections Research Center holds the copy of record for most Syracuse University dissertations and theses. Patrons looking for those student works not available online, on microfilm, or in the general collections should send a request to the University Archives at scrc@syr.edu. Requests for these materials must be submitted 2-3 days ahead of time, and patrons can view them in the Special Collections Research Center Reading Room (600 Bird Library).
