The CSUS Theses Collection is organized and shelved by author's last name. The best way to search for a thesis is in OneSearch by keyword, since graduate students have been adding keywords describing their theses since 1997. In 2009, theses began being submitted electronically; these can be found in Scholarworks in addition to OneSearch.
Type your topic keywords in the search box. In the example below, the asterisk at the end of homeless* finds all variations of the word. Click Search.
Use the column on the right of your search results page to "Filter My Results"
Under "Resource Type" click on "Theses and Dissertations"
You may want to narrow your results to a particular department or to eliminate microfiche copies to see only the paper copies located on the Lower Level. Changing the dates to 2009 to current date will retrieve electronic copies of theses.
Scroll down to Library Location and click on LOWER LEVEL THESES to see only paper copies
You can also search by the name of the Chair of the thesis committee. Scanning thesis topics under the name of a favorite professor might help you select an appropriate chair for your own Thesis Committee.
