Since 2013, Ph.D. dissertations produced by JHU students are available in our repository JScholarship

In addition, JHU Ph.D dissertations are usually findable within the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database.

Master’s theses are also included in JScholarship.  This has been optional since 2013.

  •  Master's theses are not included in the ProQuest database, so they are not available in any form from ProQuest. 
  • JHU Master’s theses that are available in print form can be requested. You will need to know either the author or title or both.
  • If you need help identifying the names of students who graduated in specific years, the archives staff maintains a collection of commencement programs to facilitate your search. 
  • Master’s theses written for the Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) departments are also discoverable through Catalyst, our online catalog.  Circulating print copies of AAP theses are available from the Sheridan Libraries @ Columbia, DC, & Montgomery.


  • Not all schools and programs require writing and submission of Master’s theses. 
  • Practicum and capstone projects have not been collected by the Archives, with some exceptions; e.g., real estate practicums produced by Carey Business School Real Estate program master’s degree students are now being collected, although not cataloged.
  • Some schools or programs may keep an uncataloged collection of practicums, capstone projects, or dissertations  on-site. Contact the specific program or school to ask if they have such a collection.
