Dissertations

You are here

Conceptualization and implementation of independent research through the dissertation process is the culmination of doctoral study.

Prior to the dissertation process, doctoral candidates should familiarize themselves with policies and procedures described in the Handbook for Ph.D. Students and Advisors and the Guidelines for Preparation of Theses and Dissertations.

The Office of Administrative Affairs and Graduate Education examines all College and Graduate School of Education, Health, and Human Services dissertations prior to filing with the University Libraries. We are fortunate to have many highly productive doctoral program areas which generate and produce a considerable number of dissertations. Doctoral candidates use guidelines from the Ph.D. Handbook in the completion of their dissertation.

The dissertation abstracts listed below are intended to give readers an awareness of the numerous issues covered as well as to provide a reference list about topics impacting professional education.
