Finding Theses and Dissertations with OneSearch

The best way to do a comprehensive search for a thesis or dissertation 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.

OneSearch Instructions:

  • Type your topic keywords in the search box and 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"
  • To limit to theses and dissertations written by Sacramento State students, scroll down and click on "Author/Creator" then select California State University, Sacramento.


  • ‚ÄčIf you need to find a thesis by major or department, simply add that to your search. Specific thesis advisors or readers can also be added to your search.
