Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

 

As of 2014, all Graduate Center dissertations, theses, and capstone projects are posted to Academic Works. Some are immediately available to read and download, and some become available after an embargo period set by the author. All pre-2014 dissertations and doctoral capstone projects are available to the CUNY community via our Retrospective Dissertations, 1965-2013 database (CUNY Login required).

Some pre-2014 works have been added to this collection at the author's request. If you graduated before 2014 and would like to add your own GC dissertation, or for information about changing your embargo settings, please email deposit@gc.cuny.edu.
