This series contains theses and dissertations written by University of Dayton students in fulfillment of requirements for master's and doctoral degrees.

The author remains the copyright holder; research must be cited appropriately. Some authors have elected not to make the full text of their works available for download, but the works are available for onsite use in Roesch Library. See access services for assistance.

Theses and dissertations written since 2012 are available from the OhioLINK Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center.

Beginning March 27, 2018, the University of Dayton began a major digitization project of theses and dissertations produced between 1940 and 2011. As these works are scanned they will be uploaded. If you are the author of a University of Dayton thesis or dissertation produced before 2011, and do not want your document to be publicly available in eCommons, you must complete and submit this form.
