This collection includes theses and dissertations submitted electronically. Prior to Dec 2009, electronic submission was optional. Beginning with the Fall 2009 semester, electronic submission of doctoral dissertations and master's theses, excluding MFA theses, is mandatory. For more information, visit the Graduate College website. If you need to extend an embargo on your thesis, please contact the Graduate College on this form.

All PhD dissertations from 1997 to present are available to University of Iowa faculty, students and staff from ProQuest.

All print theses and dissertations are available at the University of Iowa Libraries. Please search our catalog. You can add the word “thesis” to your search to help narrow your search.

To browse dissertations and theses by academic department or program, please go to the Research Unit, Center or Department page.

Theses and dissertations previously submitted in print will be digitized with permission of the author or copyright holder. The University Libraries encourages graduates to provide this permission so that their work can reach the widest possible audience. If you would like to grant this permission to the University Libraries, please use this form. Theses and dissertations will be digitized as time allows and will not become immediately accessible.
