Are you looking for a Villanova thesis or dissertation? You’ve come to the right place! Falvey Memorial Library has been collecting masters theses and doctoral dissertations written by Villanova students since 1920!
However, they’re not always so easy to find…
- Some dissertations and theses are held in print on library shelves, although they’re housed in a locked area and must be retrieved by Access Services staff.
- Others are online, some of which are in the Villanova Digital Library and others of which are accessible via ProQuest.
- A portion of the print copies housed in Falvey are represented in the online library catalog, while others are not.
- We also hold undergraduate honors theses from the most recent 20 years, and a small number of other undergraduate theses, in our online collections.
To facilitate access to these Villanova-authored materials, we have created a quick guide to finding dissertations and theses at Falvey Memorial Library, organized by school/college and by year of publication. You can access the guide here (https://library.villanova.edu/research/self-help/general-tutorials/finding-villanova-theses-and-dissertations). Follow the steps described, and you’ll be blissfully reading that thesis in no time.
If you need more help finding dissertations or theses, please contact your friendly librarian. We are always happy to help!
