Dissertations & Theses @ Rutgers University is a database of doctoral dissertations and master's theses completed at Rutgers University. It is a subset of the larger Dissertations & Theses Global database. It covers all disciplines, and it is updated every semester with newly completed Rutgers dissertations and theses. The database includes the full text of most recent dissertations and theses; for earlier years, it typically contains only indexing or indexing and abstracts. Use these year ranges as a rough guide:

  • Indexing only: 1884 - 1979
  • Indexing with abstracts: 1980 - 1996
  • Indexing, abstracts, and full text content: 1997 - present

Many dissertations and theses are also available for purchase using the "Order a Copy" link. However, some authors have chosen not to make their work available to view or purchase.

This database is the electronic counterpart and continuation of the print publication Rutgers index to doctoral dissertations, 1912-1981. For digital theses and dissertations hosted at Rutgers’ own repository, see RUcore: Rutgers Electronic Theses & Dissertations (RUetd).
