There are two databases/search engines you can use to find RSOE dissertations. All USC dissertations, including the latest ones, are in the USC Libraries Digital Library. You can also find most dissertations in Proquest Dissertations and Theses. A few years ago, the Graduate School made submitting to Proquest an optional step for all Schools. It is required to submit all dissertations to the Digital Library.
You’ll find instructions below on how to look for dissertations in the Digital Library and Proquest Dissertations.
Note: For information on how to find dissertations for the Organizational Change and Leadership (OCL) program, view this entry.
To view by dissertation chair, you can search for the chair’s name in the Advanced Search page. Go to the Advance Search page and type in the name of the chair and search (see screenshot for example: https://www.screencast.com/t/himBakhid1).
