Theses & Dissertations
Effective Spring 2014, digital copies of all UTSA dissertations and theses are submitted to ProQuest Dissertations & Theses. Currently, ProQuest preserves the digital copies for future generations of scholars, but in the future we also plan to utilize UTSA’s digital preservation system.
Please visit The Graduate School’s thesis & dissertation page for official guidelines on submitting your graduate document. Be sure to consult with your department and The Graduate School about the preferred formatting and citing style.
From 1974-2013, each UTSA student who completed a thesis or dissertation submitted two unbound copies to The Graduate School. One copy was added to the libraries’ circulating collection, and another was sent to the UTSA archives. The Graduate School eliminated the hard copy requirement for theses and dissertations as of fall 2013.
