All Graduate Center dissertations, theses, and capstone projects since 2014 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. In addition, all pre-2014 dissertations and doctoral capstone projects have been digitized and are available to the CUNY community via our Retrospective Dissertations, 1965-2013 database (CUNY Login required). (Pre-2014 master’s theses have not yet been digitized and are only available in print.)

Dissertations, theses, and capstone projects are listed by program below. To browse by year, go to the top-level Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects page.
