Senior Theses: Searching, Access & Copies

The Senior Thesis Collection contains over 60,000 theses that were written by Princeton undergraduate students from 1924 to the present.

The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library will be undergoing an extensive renovation that will begin in March 2020 and is expected to conclude in January 2021. Visit our website for the latest information on the availability of our collections during that time.  As of January 31, 2020 we will cease regular digitization services in order to prepare the collections for the move. This includes all of the senior thesis collection. 

Searching & Access

There are two ways to search for Senior Theses: via the Library Catalog or DataSpace  

  • Use the Catalog to find a specific thesis, by either title or the author's name. To view a thesis in the reading room, you must request it through the Catalog.

To view non digital theses: 

  • Theses written between 1924 and 2012 are in paper or microfiche format and must be viewed in the reading room of the Mudd Manuscript Library

  • Theses written in 2013 are in digital format, but must be viewed on computers at the Mudd Manuscript Library

  • Theses written in 2014 and later are available via DataSpace  on computers connected to the Princeton University computing network, with a small number restricted for viewing at the Mudd Manuscript Library, or restriced from view temporarily
