Finding Dissertations and Theses

If you’re looking for dissertations and theses by students of The Claremont Colleges, you have several options:

If none of the above options have the dissertation you are looking for, we suggest contacting the academic department or program that issued the work as some departments keep their own copies of dissertations. You can also Contact a Librarian.

More dissertations, including those from Claremont Graduate University and from students outside of The Claremont Colleges, can be found in the ProQuest database Dissertations and Theses, which has more than one million dissertations and theses from academic institutions in the US, Canada, Great Britain, and Europe. Please note that if you do not have institutional access to this database there may be a cost associated with obtaining a copy of a dissertation or theses.
