Finding dissertations and theses about dance

Dissertations, Theses, & Senior Projects by UO Students

You can search for doctoral dissertations, masters theses, and senior thesis projects by UO students within LibrarySearch; this is particularly useful if you are looking for a document older than 1996, or if you are looking for something with an audio or video component.  To find graduate theses & dissertations and undergraduate honors theses by UO students, use the Advanced Search option in LibrarySearch, and search the phrase "University of Oregon theses" as the title, and the word "dance" as the subject, with the search scope limited to UO Libraries.

Below are some databases that offer citation and full-text access to more recent theses and dissertations by UO students:
