Dissertations & Theses

Locating Doctoral Dissertations and Master's Theses

1) Go the the ODU Dissertations and Theses link to find dissertations and theses written by Old Dominion University graduate students.

2) Go to the Non-ODU link for dissertations and theses written at other universities.

3) If you still cannot find the full text of what you need, go to the Interlibrary Loan link for further instructions.

ODU Electronic Theses & Dissertations

As of 2016, ODU instituted an Electronic Thesis and Dissertation program -- electronic format is now required for all students. All dissertations and theses will be submitted and available electronically through ProQuest's Dissertations & Theses @ ODU and also through the university's institutional repository: ODU Digital Commons

No new print copies will be available in the University Libraries.

For more information, including the official guide, go to the ODU Graduate School Resources page.
