ASU Dissertations and Theses

The ASU Library has a copy for most of the dissertations and theses written by ASU graduate and honors students. This guide explains how to determine what is available and how to get a copy.


This section is written for ASU library staff although ASU faculty, staff, students, and users outside of ASU are welcome to view these pages, too. 

For each document type (doctoral dissertation, master's thesis, and honors thesis), university and library policies and procedures over the years are outlined. Each document type is divided by time frames with information about the physical format of the material, where the material is located, and which resource tools to use to find the material.   

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
