Dissertations from NSU, Including Specific NSU Schools and Centers

To conduct a general search for NSU dissertations in digital format, start in the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database, pull down the search field menu, and select the School name/code field. Use the "Look up schools" link to the right of the search box to find Nova Southeastern University or, for older dissertations, Nova University.

To find additional works authored by NSU students, please refer to the information below, arranged by NSU School/Center:

Dissertations/Theses Web sites

In addition to the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database, there are numerous public Web sites that provide varying amounts of information on dissertations and theses from all over the world. The following Web sites may provide citations, abstracts and some full text. Some Web sites provide information on dissertations that are "in progress."

Ordering Dissertations

For dissertations not available online, but indexed in ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, there are a couple of options for obtaining a copy:

  • For qualified NSU doctoral students only, the Document Delivery Department will purchase up to two dissertations at no cost to the student. Orders for one or both free dissertations MUST be placed through Document Delivery, not the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database. To proceed, log into the ILLIAD system and indicate in the form that you are requesting your free dissertation(s).

  • Distance students and non-NSU students may use interlibrary loan (ILL) through their local library. Local NSU students may use the NSU Interlibrary Loan Department. Local NSU students, please use the ILLIAD system and indicate that you are requesting a loan. Please note that less than half of all dissertations can be obtained through the interlibrary loan (ILL) system, and can take many months to obtain.
