Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs) (2011-)



This collection houses the Master's theses and Doctoral dissertations authored by CSUN's graduate students since 2011, when the first theses were submitted electronically as part of the CSUN ETDs mandate. The mandate, which took effect officially in the Spring 2012 semester, requires that all CSUN theses and dissertations be submitted to ScholarWorks. For digitized versions of print theses, please see the Legacy Open Access ETDs collection and the Legacy Partial Access ETDs collection (1957-2010).

Theses and Dissertations are also housed in each discipline's departmental communities.
