CEAS M.A. Theses

All CEAS M.A. students are required to submit a final thesis as part of the degree requirements.  Prior to 2017, all theses were submitted via hard copy and those hard copy theses are located for review in the CEAS offices- Knight Building, 1st floor.  We ask that hard copy theses are reviewed in the office and are not taken from the Knight Building.  Beginning in 2017, CEAS M.A. theses are now submitted electronically to the Stanford Digital Repository and links to these documents are located in the thesis database.
