About theses and dissertations

If you're writing a master's thesis or a doctoral dissertation, you'll probably want to look at previous theses or dissertations in your field. 

Although your thesis or dissertation will eventually be archived by the library, you should contact the Office of Graduate Studies with any questions about the production and approval of your thesis or dissertation.

Rowan University theses online

Rowan Digital Works serves as the digital repository for Rowan University theses and dissertations approved since 1996. A few theses or dissertations may be embargoed (unavailable to the public) for 6 months to 2 years after approval. 

Finding dissertations
