Theses and Dissertations

Most PhD dissertations and master's theses completed in the Jackson School and its predecessors before 2010 are available in print in the Walter Library.  Some are available only in the Library Storage Facility, which contains official archival copies as well as some circulating copies. 

Most UT Austin theses and dissertations completed after 2008 are available electronically in Texas ScholarWorks, our institutional repository, and a growing number of theses prior to that date (including all geology theses before 1932) have been digitized and made available there as well.  It can take about a year after a dissertation is submitted to the Graduate School before it's cataloged and available to the public.  Some authors choose to embargo their dissertation for an additional two years.

The Library Catalog is the place to search for hardcopy theses and ETDs in the UT Libraries collections.  The Walter Library maintained a list of geoscience MS and PhD theses with adviser names until 2019.  If you need a copy of this file please contact the Geology Librarian.
