Recent Dissertations

Knowledge@UChicago provides open access to roughly 80% of the dissertations completed after Summer 2015.

Subscription databases, PQDT Global and ProQuest Dissertations & Theses @ University of Chicago, provide comprehensive access. Some University of Chicago open access dissertations are also available through PQDT Open. ProQuest processes dissertations within 12 weeks after the end of each quarter, so last quarter's dissertations may not be available through ProQuest yet.

Some authors choose to delay access to their dissertations.
