Find Dissertations & Theses: CSM

A quick guide to finding a thesis or dissertation.

Why Theses or Dissertations?

PhD and Masters theses tend to walk you through a subject matter and give you in depth knowledge about a subject.

On behalf of the Colorado School of Mines and the Graduate School, the Library serves as the repository for Colorado School of Mines theses and dissertations.

Note: Some theses and dissertations may be embargoed up to a year after graduation before public release; please see the Graduate School Information.  Mines dissertations and theses are copyrighted by the author.
