How do I find a thesis written by a WPU student?

The Library has a small collection of print theses by William Paterson University graduates, as well as a growing collection of online theses.

Print theses are located on shelving next to the Periodicals department, at the rear of the first floor, and are arranged according to the author's last name.  This can make browsing a bit difficult, and you are encouraged to use the Online Catalog to find the call number before going to the shelf.  Search for the topic you're interested in, but be sure to include the 'word' ThesisShelves to limit to our print holdings (see list here).

Theses from a small number of academic departments are also available through the Theses@The William Paterson University of New Jersey database.  This small, but growing collection provides a searchable interface and full-text access to available WPU theses.
