As of 2014, all newly submitted Graduate Center dissertations and theses appear in Academic Works shortly after graduation. Some works are immediately available to read and download, and some become available after an embargo period set by the author. Dissertations and theses from before 2014 are generally accessible only to the CUNY community, but some authors have chosen to make theirs open access.

Note: The graduate program in Germanic Languages & Literatures is housed in the Comparative Literature program. Accordingly, Germanic Languages & Literatures dissertations appear here.
