Sacramento State Thesis Project or Dissertation

Explains how to find theses and dissertations written by Sacramento State graduate students and beyond.

Finding Theses and Dissertations with OneSearch

The best way to do a comprehensive search for a thesis or dissertation is in OneSearch by topic, author, department, etc.

In 2009, theses began being submitted electronically; these can be found in Sac State Scholars in addition to OneSearch.

OneSearch Instructions:

  • Type your topic keywords, author, department, etc. in the search box and click Search.
  • If searching by department it is helpful to add the word thesis to the search (i.e. social work thesis)
  • 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.


  • Specific thesis advisors or readers can also be added to your search.
