WGST 170: Introduction to Women's & Gender Studies

Finding Dissertations / Theses

Use ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global to search for (surprise) dissertations and theses.

Use Existing Bibliographies

Dissertations and theses are substantive research projects that people complete in order to attain a graduate degree (MA, PhD, etc.). While they are not considered peer-reviewed, their Works Cited pages can serve as an excellent, reliably curated source of relevant books, articles, newspapers, archives, and more.
