Current dissertations and theses from UVM graduate programs are submitted electronically and will be available in this collection approximately twelve weeks after the final submission by the candidate. Older theses and dissertations that are available electronically (mostly since 2007) are in the process of being added to this collection. Print dissertations and theses, and pre-2014 electronic ones not yet added to this collection, are searchable at UVM Theses & Dissertations.
