RU Library collects and makes accessible graduate dissertations (Ph.D) and masters level theses as well as some masters level major research papers.
The RU Library Digital Repository contains the most complete collection of these documents, online, and searchable from the website and via search engines like Google. Older documents may also be found in the RU Library catalogue. The library no longer collects print copies of theses and dissertations.
To search for documents from a specific programme, try using a keyword search that includes the words "ryerson" "dissertations" and a couple of words from the name of the programme such as "communication" "culture" or "mechanical" "engineering."
A number of departments require students to deposit a copy of their final-year thesis in the Library. Theses are accessible using the Library's catalogue and are shelved in Closed Stacks -- Please submit the online Closed Stack Request Form and you will receive an email within a couple of days. Alternately, bring your request to the Circulation Desk for assistance.
Undergraduate theses for Civil Engineering were kept by the department.
