Theses and Dissertations

About Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Starting in Fall 2004, as a result of UCF’s Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) Initiative, ETD was made mandatory for graduate students. They began submitting ETDs during the Spring semester of 2004; electronic submission was required beginning in the Fall semester of 2004.

These titles are searchable in STARS, and may be searched by title, author, keyword, college, and advisor or committee chair.  In most cases, the full-text is available, however some are restricted to use only while on a UCF campus.
