Theses and Dissertations

In the last more than 100 years Ph.D. and Masters students of the Sociology Department have successfully completed theses and dissertations on a wide range of fascinating sociological topics. Please click on the link below for the titles, abstracts, and in many cases full texts of theses and dissertations.

MOspace is the digital institutional repository for the University of Missouri and is maintained by the University Library. The largest part of the Sociology collection in MOspace is the Sociology Electronic Theses and Dissertations collection. There is usually a 1-2 year lag time between the completion of the dissertation and its appearance in MOspace. Librarians are also digitizing theses written during the earliest days of the department, over 100 years ago.
