Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs)


The full text collection of ETDs (electronic theses and dissertations), completed by graduates of the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, is part of the WakeSpace institutional repository. The collection may be browsed by author, date, subject, or title. ETD submission was required beginning in December 2008; these and dissertations completed prior to that date may be found in the print collections of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library or the Coy C. Carpenter Library.

Helpful Tips & Links

Ordering Print Copies

The Graduate School and libraries do not require submission of print copies of theses and dissertations; however, many students wish to order bound copies for personal collections. Although you may order print copies directly from ProQuest via the ETD Administrator system upon submission, you may also order copies through third-party online print services, such as Lulu.
