African American Studies: Theses and Dissertations

Bibliography of theses and dissertations on African American topics completed at Berkeley.

Find Dissertations

Find Dissertations by searching Dissertations and Theses (Dissertation Abstracts) Full Text, which includes full-text of most dissertations since 1997. It indexes over 1.5 million dissertations completed in North American (including UC) and European universities from 1861 to the present. Listings after 1980 include abstracts, and some feature 24-page excerpts. 

If the dissertation is not available in the database, check UC Library Search. Dissertations completed at other UC campuses prior to 1996 or outside the UC system must be obtained through Interlibrary Loan.
